Description: REACH OUT Homeless Winter Shelter Programs provide shelter, daily meals and case management services to homeless adults in South King County. The program is operated during the winter months and relies on partnerships with area congregations, community organizations, businesses, and public and private contributors, as well as many caring individuals and families. The program’s goal is to serve those in need by providing support to assist them in achieving self-sufficiency, in turn strengthening our community. Each winter season, homeless men and women receive three meals a day and a safe, warm place to spend each night, thanks to the hard work and contributions of many.

We welcome your support in any way that you are able and willing to give: time and energy, resources, monetary donations and prayer.

REACH OUT Men’s and Women’s Shelters are winter shelter programs and are open from October 1st to March 31st.
