KCHA does not directly offer homeless housing. Instead, we work with local services that can connect you to housing options, including KCHA programs, for both families and single adults. The Crisis Clinic also provides lists of homeless and emergency services.
For Homeless Families
Families who need housing right away can call Family Housing Connection at 2-1-1. One phone call connects you to more than 80 shelter and housing services from across King County. These services include:
- Emergency shelter
- Rental assistance
- Transitional housing
- Service-enriched housing
- Permanent supportive housing
For Homeless Single Adults
KCHA works with local nonprofits to provide housing with supportive services for homeless single adults. These partners include Sound Mental Health, Valley Cities, and Navos. You must be referred into this type of housing by a nonprofit service provider.
For Homeless Young Adults
Single young adults, ages 18-25, who are without housing or will lose their housing within 14 days should schedule an appointmnet with Youth Housing Connection. Appointments are available at drop-in centers, young adult shelters and meal sites. Young adults not already connected to a young adult provider can schedule by calling 2-1-1.
For Homeless Veterans
Homeless veterans in need of help can call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at (877) 424-3838.
The King County Veterans program serves low-income, homeless, disabled, and at-risk veterans and their families. Visit the King County Veterans program website for more information.
The Supportive services for Veteran Families program (SSVF) helps veterans secure and stabilize their future through permanent housing. This program is for men and women who served in the U.S. military and their families, who are now homeless or in danger of becoming homeless soon, and wish to obtain and maintain permanent housing. For more information, call (206) 336-4601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
