North King County Severe Weather Shelter Now Open


The cities of Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Bothell and Woodinville have partnered with the King County Regional Homelessness Authority to open a North King County Severe Weather Shelter at St. Dunstan's Church in Shoreline.

Urban League will staff and operate the site when Tier 2 or Tier 3 Cold Weather Activation Conditions are met - information here. Activations are announced and updated on KCRHA's Severe Weather Response page.

Daytime warming centers are at several local libraries: Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Bothell, plus the Kenmore Hanger.

Shelter Location:
722 N 145th St., Shoreline, WA 98133
Serves Single Adults & Couples
8:00 pm – 7:00 am
Walk-ins welcome

*Calling ahead to confirm a bed is available strongly encouraged
Hotline: (206) 837 - 2746

People are encouraged to call the hotline to secure a shelter spot, but walk-ins will be welcomed and no referral is necessary. Using the number above, Urban League will be coordinating transportation via Lyft/Uber for folks seeking shelter/engaged by other partners in the broader North King County community. Please share this number with your colleagues in emergency response roles.

The shelter is not able to accept donations at this time. If anyone is interested in donating supplies, they should contact Camp United We Stand which is currently being hosted by St. Dunstan's. Contact information can be found on the camp's website.

NUHSA, in partnership with the City of Shoreline and St. Dunstan's, operated the Shoreline Severe Weather Shelter during the winter seasons of 2018 through 2023 (more information here).
