Shelter & Homelessness Services

Catholic Community Services provides a continuum of care for homeless and low-income people throughout Western Washington. Through day centers, emergency shelters and emergency services, we provide warm, safe refuge from the streets.

We believe in compassion, love and respect for all people, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. Many of our programs have facilities where homeless men, women and children can come to bathe, launder clothes, receive medical attention and alcohol and drug treatment, services that help to normalize and stabilize lives. To help them make connections to secure lives again, we provide case management and employment support.
