About the Enhanced Shelter
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. King County and the Cities of Seattle, Shoreline, Bothell, Kenmore and private donors all contribute funding to this effort and our work with The King County Regional Homelessness Authority. Over 100 community volunteers help make this program a success.
In addition to providing core shelter services, we provide enhanced case management services (24 x 7) that collaboratively help program participants with 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.
