City of Spokane Announces 24/7 Shelter System

Temperatures are dropping and the City of Spokane is working in partnership with service providers to supply shelter services 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Today the City of Spokane announced the start of this system. The services provided by the 24/7 shelter system are available starting November 1.

The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, Volunteers of America, Family Promise and other providers have helped us design a this system of emergency shelters. The system includes day and overnight shelters for youth, families, and individuals experiencing homelessness.

The 24/7 shelter system ensures that individuals and families will be able to stay in a safe shelter with their pets and possessions. By accessing the 24/7 shelter system individuals and families will be connected with coordinated assessment providers. These providers help people gain access to sustainable housing and supportive services like employment assistance and healthcare.

For the past five years family homelessness in the City of Spokane has decreased each year. Spokane saw a 15% decrease in family homelessness from 2015. We are making progress but we have a long way to go before we achieve our goal of ending homelessness.
