Intake Line
Confidential emergency shelter and advocacy for women and children facing domestic violence, with locations serving King County.

YWCA offers safe and confidential housing for women and families who are experiencing domestic violence (DV). This is a short-term emergency shelter program for women and children only. 

Residents will have their own room and meet regularly with a DV advocate to address barriers to stable housing and access wrap-around support services.

This is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic shelter with residents from different cultures, races, religions, and sexual orientations. Female survivors are welcomed, as well as transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. 

Services for male survivors of DV are available  (such as motel vouchers and other housing assistance), however, men are not housed at these shelter facilities. 

If you are not experiencing domestic violence and need emergency shelter or housing assistance, please contact 2-1-1 or your referral agency.

Eligibility & Enrollment

YWCA's emergency shelter for survivors of domestic violence is open to women 18-years and older, as well as their minor children. Males older than 17-years may not stay at these facilities.

  • To determine if this shelter will meet your needs, call 206.461.4882 for a phone screening.
  • After the phone screening, participants will be scheduled for an intake appointment at the shelter.
