North King County Enhanced Shelter at The Oaks
After 14 years of providing winter shelter to people who are unhoused in North King County with the support of many community partners via the Lake City Taskforce on Homelessness, Lake City Partners Ending Homelessness is pleased to have transitioned our winter shelter to a 24/7 Enhanced Shelter at The Oaks in Shoreline. The Oaks serves up to 60 unhoused single adults and couples in private rooms with meals provided by Hunger Intervention Program, local restaurants, and community volunteers.
In addition to providing core shelter services, we provide enhanced case management services (24 x 7) to collaboratively provide a broad range of supports including healthcare (physical & behavioral), personal stabilization resources (ID, DSHS, criminal justice, etc.) and life needs, workforce access and skills practices that help people rebuild their lives and exit the shelter into housing with the resources and resiliency needed to remain housed and move forward with their lives.
God’s Li’l Acre Day Center
Located at 12521 33rd Ave NE, the day center offers laundry facilities, showers, a community kitchen, internet and phone, resource referrals, a food closet, nursing care, personal storage, blankets and clothes, and a safe and secure place to just “be”.
Daily hours are:
Monday – Friday 9am – 12pm & 1pm – 4pm
(closed from 12pm-1pm)
Woman-Identified Only Tuesday 1pm – 4pm
Housing Outreach & Case Management
Our Housing Outreach work was added as a new program in May 2018 as an effort by King County to support programs outside of the City of Seattle.
Today, through our Housing and Case Management Outreach program we engage directly with those experiencing homelessness who are unhoused and also work closely with municipal departments like police and community services to help triage and support their engagement and interventions. Similar to a co-responder mental health model, our Homelessness co-responder case management is highly effective for local cities working to bring services to their unhoused residents.
For example, in a partnership with the City of Shoreline, a full time housing and case management specialist conducts street outreach and responds to city requests with the primary purpose of referring people to the Oaks 24/7 shelter and connecting people to housing and other essential services. This worker is available on call to City of Shoreline’s police, fire and parks departments to co-respond and help resource the needs of people experiencing homelessness. They visit Shoreline facilities, meal programs, bus stops, and outdoor locations to engage people and build relationships with other service providers.
