Housing and Essential Needs (HEN) – Thurston County

The Thurston County Housing and Essential Needs Program is a program operated by Catholic Community Services. Our office number is (360) 583-3410 and our office is open Monday through Friday from 8 am – 4 pm.

The HEN program of Thurston County offers qualifying residents services such as monthly essential needs (toilet paper, shampoo, hygiene items, etc.) and potentially rental assistance, security deposits, move in costs. In conjunction to these services, we also offer case management to help people gain and/or maintain stable housing.

How do I apply?

HEN is a direct referral program through DSHS. If you qualify for ABD (Aged, Blind and Disabled program), DSHS will refer you to programs you are eligible for and HEN may be one of them. If DSHS gives you a referral for HEN, please call our offices at 360-583-3410 and schedule an appointment for an Intake. You will need to bring the referral letter and a picture id with you to the appointment.
