According to a report, Amazon is now offering a homeless shelter a permanent spot in its new building in Seattle. The move comes a year after the tech giant let one of the city’s homeless shelters move into an abandoned motel in the area of a new company expansion site. According to The New York Times, the homeless shelter, Mary’s Place, spent the past year using the abandoned motel to house up to 60 families and their pets. Under the new arrangement, the shelter will now be able to accommodate up to 65 families in emergency housing.
