Emergency Shelters

This brochure lists emergency shelters in King County for single women, single men, couples, families with children, youth and young adults, and for survivors of domestic violence in need of a confidential location for their safety. Families that are literally homeless and seeking emergency housing must call 2-1-1 to be screened for an appointment with Family Housing Connection (FHC), a single entry-point system for families to access emergency housing resources in King County. This brochure includes additional information about FHC, as well as a list of family shelters in King County that are not participating in the FHC program.
