Sacred Heart Shelter


If you are a parent/guardian with at least one minor child (18 years or younger) in your care please call Family Emergency Shelter Line for intake: 206-245-1026. Available 7 days a week from 9am to 4pm.

Sacred Heart Shelter provides safe, comfortable shelter to families experiencing the crisis of homelessness.  We welcome families with minor children (18 years or younger), including families with male heads of household or other guardians who are staying someplace not intended for human habitation.

MISSION: Sacred Heart Shelter empowers families to stabilize and normalize through on-site case management, connections to resources and by providing a safe, home-like refuge for the entire family. We strive to ensure families exit homelessness permanently.

If you want to provide food for our shelter, please contact Volunteer & Resources Coordinator Julie Thompson (
