Emergency Cold
Weather Shelter

The South Snohomish County Emergency Cold Weather Shelter in partnership with VOA provides a warm place to sleep and a hot meal to anyone when nights are cold.

We provide homeless individuals with safety, warmth, a full stomach and most of all, hospitality and compassion.

If you are interested in volunteering contact Lindsay Donovan.
