This brochure lists emergency shelters, urban campsites, and safe parking programs 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. Anyone who is literally homeless and who is seeking housing resources should call 2-1-1 to be screened for an assessment with Coordinated Entry for All (CEA).

CEA is a county-wide program that ensures that people experiencing homelessness are able to get help finding stable housing. This brochure includes additional information about CEA, as well as a list of shelters and other emergency housing resources in King County that are not accessed exclusively through the CEA program.
