Historically, CCS shelter programs in South King County collaborated with faith communities in Auburn, Kent, Federal Way and Renton to host overnight shelter in congregate spaces at church facilities. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, programs have transitioned from congregate overnight emergency shelters, to 24/7 enhanced, motel-based shelters. Three separate shelter programs (ARISE, HOME and Reach Out) have been consolidated into one program, serving single adult women and men experiencing homelessness, at a motel in SeaTac.

Community members experiencing homelessness receive 24/7 shelter and essential needs support such as meals, toiletries and access to other basic needs items. Supportive case management services are provided to identify and address barriers to housing stability. While housing is the focus of case management, staff also help community members set and meet goals for education, employment, family reunification, mental health and addiction recovery.
