SNOHOMISH COUNTY – As colder temperatures arrive this week, multiple locations in Snohomish County can provide overnight shelter during dangerously cold weather.

According to Snohomish County Public Safety Hub, Cold Weather Shelters are operated by community-based organizations, volunteer groups, and communities of faith across Snohomish County.

Hours of operation, criteria for opening, and length of the season vary by location. However, Cold Weather Shelters typically open when overnight temperatures are expected to be below 34 degrees F.

This week, temperatures in the county will hover between 30-44 degrees F during the day, and 7-30 degrees F overnight.

While the Human Services Department 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 shelters and in transportation resources.

Youths between the ages of 12-17 years of age who need shelter may call 425-877-5171
