Unsung Hero: Todd McNeal

Todd McNeal of Mill Creek provides a safe environment for kids in need.

(Mill Creek – WA) Todd McNeal of Mill Creek has been recognized as a SPIRIT 105.3 “Unsung Hero.”

Every child deserves a loving and safe environment. Todd took it upon himself to start the nonprofit Safe Place, a temporary home for children displaced from their homes due to trauma involving their parents. Safe Place offers kids a chance to transition after being removed from their previous living conditions, until social workers can find the perfect placement for them.

After becoming a Christian at the age of 29, Todd felt inspired to start Safe Place from Jesus’ example in Matthew 25, the story of “The Sheep and the Goats”. The children who come to Safe Place – most under 13 years old – are brought there in times of crisis. Often times, children come with just the clothes on their backs or maybe a garbage bag filled with their belongings. Todd serves His kingdom by providing clothes, food, comfort and care to these young children.

With a servant’s heart and a passion for others, Todd is a shining example of the “SPIRIT of Seattle.” It’s an honor and a privilege to recognize him as one of our “Unsung Heroes.”

SPIRIT 105.3’s “SPIRIT of Seattle – Unsung Hero” campaign is a program that recognizes individuals for their efforts to faithfully and selflessly serve others in our communities with joy and excellence each and every day.

  • A Less Than Norman Rockwell Family

    I was discussing the holiday with a coworker the other day, and we began joking that perhaps what many of our tables need is an extra seat for a licensed family therapist to mediate. “Yes,” he laughed, “they could wear a referee shirt! With a whistle!” Read More
