Homeless Emergency Shelter Availability

Below are the Shelters open to the general community. It is worth calling the shelter as some may require a referral or have filled their beds since the updating of this site.  The data for this site is updated Monday through Friday by 10 am utilizing the data reported from the previous business day. 
For more information on a specific shelter, please click the name of the shelter to be redirected to The Pierce County Coalition to End Homelessness page where more details can be found. 

Please note that all family shelter availability represents the vacancies for families not individuals. For example, if there are 4 vacancies for a family shelter this means 4 different families of varying sizes may be accommodated.  

If there are any issues with this site please fill out a TA Request form to get the issue resolved.
