Family Shelter is located at Evergreen Family Village. The space is limited to 2-6 families depending on household size. It is a first come, first serve occupancy, based on available space and assessment.
How it works:
Each family is assigned a room in a recently renovated, two or three bedroom apartment that is shared with another family.
Each family has a lockable bedroom or two, depending on family size, access to shared kitchen, bathroom, and living room.
Guests are required to sign a use agreement. Apartments require sobriety, and weekly case management for families to ensure an average stay of 30 days or until housing can be obtained.
Case management is a courtesy of Clallam County because it provides assistance with longer term housing, employment, food stamps, food bank deliveries, move in plans, help with enrolling in public assistance, and coordination with other social services required to stabilize family housing needs.
