Noel House Programs provides safe, comfortable shelter to a diverse community of homeless women, particularly those most vulnerable. We strive to create an environment of dignity, respect and compassion. We recognize the intrinsic value of each person and honor her unique experience.

Program Overview

Noel House Enhanced Shelter provides 24-hour access to a semi-private shelter cubicle for up to one year. By having access to a safe place to be around-the-clock, homeless women are better able to address health issues, focus on goals, and build relationships and support systems within the community.

Noel House Permanent Supportive Housing provides housing to 20 chronically homeless women in a community-based, services-rich setting. Breakfast and dinner are provided daily. Intensive onsite case management includes developing individualized goals with a focus on building connection to services.

Women’s Referral Center welcomes women experiencing homelessness every night of the year on a walk-in basis. The Women’s Referral Center refers 180 women nightly to 15 shelters in partnership with multiple service agencies. Evening meals and hygiene services are also available. The Women’s Referral Center operates nightly from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. It is located at 2030 Third Avenue in Seattle.

Community-Based Shelters are located at several host sites throughout Seattle. Each night, 30 women find safety and community at St. Mark’s Emergency Shelter. While this is a staffed shelter, a ministry of dedicated volunteers from St. Mark’s Cathedral creates a warm, welcoming environment at bedtime and breakfast. In addition, our community partners coordinate shelter for 22 homeless women at volunteer-run programs at:

  • St. John’s Catholic Church
  • Temple de Hirsch Sinai
  • Holy Rosary Catholic Church
  • Bethany Community Church
  • Union Community Church

Women’s Wellness Center is a health and hygiene facility for homeless women located at 1900 2nd Avenue in Seattle. In a safe and peaceful environment, women can take care of their hygiene needs while being treated with dignity and respect. Showers, laundry facilities, toiletries and refreshments are provided every day (Monday-Sunday) 7:00 am – 10:45 am. These services are offered year-round with closures only for a few holidays.

Eastside Shelter for Families is a 50-guest shelter serving families experiencing the crisis of homelessness. The shelter welcomes families with minor children, including families with male heads of household or other guardians. Operating year-round, the Eastside Shelter for Families is hosted and supported by our community partners:

  • Redmond United Methodist Church
  • St. Peter’s United Methodist Church
  • Overlake Park Presbyterian Church
