Emergency Services Brochures

King County 2-1-1 offers downloadable brochures to help connect people with the most critical services in King County. Brochures are updated at least three times per year and often more frequently. The date of the last update is printed on the front of the brochure.

The status of funding, services, hours of operation, etc. for social service agencies is constantly changing. We advise users to check our website often in order to ensure your agency is distributing the most recent version of these brochures.

To view or download the brochures you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Emergency Shelters

This brochure lists emergency shelters in King County for single men and women, youth and domestic violence victims. Note: Families seeking shelter or housing must be screened by King County 2-1-1 who will set an appointment for an in-person screening by the Family Housing Connections Program. This is the only way to secure a place on the consolidated family housing wait list. Thus, we do not list family shelters.
