Multiple locations in Snohomish County provide overnight shelters during dangerously cold weather. Cold weather season generally starts in November and can last through March. The shelters usually open when temperatures are expected to be below freezing (under 32 degrees F) overnight. However, seasons can vary in length and intensity. Cold weather shelters also may vary in hours, days or location.
This page is provided by the District as a round-up of cold weather shelters in the county, and is updated as needed throughout the season. During periods of below-freezing weather, expect the site to be updated often with shelter openings and closures.
If you would like to volunteer at any of the cold weather shelters, please contact them directly using the information below.
While the Health District can provide general information and updates, questions about a specific shelter should be directed to that shelter.
Please note that COVID-19 precautions will be taken at all shelters, which may cause changes at both shelters and in transportation resources.
Youth between the ages of 12-17 years of age who need shelter may call 425-877-5171.
