HOUSING ASSISTANCE / EMERGENCY SHELTER

WINTER OF 2009 REPORT (this information has not been updated for the Winter of 2010... be sure to call the following locations first)

KING COUNTY ADMIN BUILDING Because of limited space at shelters, a new shelter has opened in Seattle at the King County Admin building, at the corner of 4th Ave South and Jefferson St. The doors to the shelter open at 9pm each night.

EVERETT SALVATION ARMY The Everett Salvation Army will have emergency shelter on winter nights when temperatures drop below freezing.

LYNNWOOD TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH
This article has instructions on where to go in Lynnwood for cold weather shelter at Trinity Lutheran Church, which is near 196th st SW and Highway 99. The shelter is only open when the temperature is going to drop below 33 degrees.

Perhaps you've come to this website after hearing about it from someone you've met on the street. If you've found yourself suddenly without a place to live, there are resources to help you.

The American Red Cross, Salvation Army and the Everett Gospel Mission are three (of many) shelters that you or someone you know can turn to.

WAYS TO HELP TODAY IN TIME FOR WINTER

IMMEDIATE NEED: As temperatures drop, we need cold weather sleeping bags to help the homeless. Click here to help!

Everett Gospel Mission reports an approximate one week waiting list to get into the shelter. That means that homeless who need shelter -- even as temperatures drop -- have to fend for themselves. We can help them with cold weather sleeping bags, but we need your help!
