shelter plus care:
Housing support for disabled adults and families facing homelessness in Snohomish County.
Shelter Plus Care responds to the need of a hard to reach population - homeless adults and families with disabilities - with permanent housing and long-term support services.
This program is operated through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and allows the YWCA to offer homeless individuals and their families a variety of housing choices, rental assistance and a range of supportive services provided by partner agencies.
Partner agencies include: Bridgeways, Catholic Community Services, Compass Health, DSHS - Developmental Disability Administration, Sea Mar Behavioral Health, Sunrise Services and the Tulalip Tribes.
Applicants for Shelter Plus Care must be connected to the program through Snohomish County Coordinated Entry. Individuals and families can enroll in Coordinated Entry by contacting a Housing Navigator at one of the Coordinated Entry sites listed here: http://snohomishcountywa.gov/2238/Investing-In-Futures.
Direct applications will not be accepted.
To be eligible, applicants must be experiencing literal homelessness and have a disability.
