Covid-19

Due to the challenges facing congregate shelter settings brought to light by COVID-19, we are excited to announce the opening of The North King County Enhanced Shelter at The Oaks. At the Oaks, residents can safely stay in shelter with their own room which provides safety and stability as well as having access to on-site shelters, meals and case management. Vaccinations have also be available to shelter residents thanks to Shoreline Fire!

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 is pleased to announce that we have transitioned our winter shelter to a 24/7 Enhanced Shelter at The Oaks in Shoreline. The Oaks will serve 60 unhoused single adults and couples with pets in private rooms with meals provided by Hunger Intervention Program and community volunteers.

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

Shoreline Housing Outreach

Housing Outreach was added as a new program in May 2018 as an effort by King County to support programs outside of the City of Seattle. Currently, a full time housing specialist conducts outreach on the streets of Shoreline with the primary purpose of referring people to the Oaks 24/7 shelter, 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 respond to resource 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.

In Memoriam

The Leaves of Remembrance project serves to honor the community members we have lost. The project is sponsored by WHEEL Women’s Housing, Equality and Enhancement League and the Homeless Remembrance Project Committee. Here are a few of our friends and loved ones who have passed but will always be remembered:

Phillip Leonard Carrasco, 1953-2009

Phil was homeless off and on for more than 15 years, and was beloved in the Lake City homeless and service provider communities. He was a Real Change vendor and a veteran, and had spent time at the VA Hospital the week he died. Early morning on August 5, 2009, Phil Carrasco died by suicide. He is missed.

Eva Washington, 1932-2011

After coming to God’s Li’l Acre for a couple of years, as a quite elderly woman, Eva was invited to move into the home of one of the center’s volunteers. She lived with this family until her peaceful passing two years later on December 11, 2011.
Eva is warmly remembered by many at God’s Li’l Acre for colorful clothing and a huge heart, and named “Mama of the Park.”

Scott Trezise, 1970-2016

During the adult years that he lived in Lake City, Scott made many friends. While the life that followed was a norm different from his childhood, it was a journey that gave him strength to endure circumstances and experiences of all kinds.
Scott had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh and tease. He was kind and gentle, just a big ol’ “teddy bear” at heart.
We will miss him deeply.
