HomeShelters and Homeless ServicesHOME

The HOME program is a year-round overnight shelter for single adult men ages 18 and older.
The HOME shelter directly address the issues of homelessness in South King County by providing a safe place for homeless men to sleep and receive a hot meal, as well as giving them the opportunity to stabilize and work on self-sufficiency through case management. Men who stay at the shelter are provided with case management services which focus on addressing employment goals, mental health and CD issues, Veterans’ services, securing permanent affordable housing and health care for each individual.

The HOME shelter has been in operation in South King County for 12 years. In 2009, the HOME program served 108 men and provided 7,369 bednights. Last year, HOME had a goal to place 14 men into permanent housing. HOME met and exceeded this goal by placing 26 men into permanent housing.

The program has relied on the partnership and support from area churches, the city of Kent, King County, United Way of King County, and 1,440 volunteers from organizations throughout South King County.
