Our shelters provide a safe place to sleep each night. They also offer an opportunity to engage with counselors and access case management resources for employment, education, training, health, and housing.
All our shelters are enhanced shelters. Our enhanced shelter model removes several barriers for people transitioning off the street by partnering overnight shelter with 24/7 on-site support services and intensive case management including housing navigation services.
As with all our programs, our shelters focus on the three pillars of stability, growth, and community.
- We offer stability by providing the safety of overnight shelter and meals. On-site housing navigators help connect our guests to safe, permanent homes.
- We create growth opportunities through our on-site healthcare connections, counseling/case management, skill development, and more.
- Through forging relationships in an environment of care, dignity, and belonging, we help build community. This community helps undo the trauma of homelessness for lasting positive outcomes.
With more than 256 beds at three shelters in Seattle, we offer a measure of comfort and stability to men and women who are experiencing homelessness.
