EVERETT, Wash., February 12, 2021– With more snow and cold weather arriving this evening, Snohomish County is providing an update on cold weather shelter capacity. Recognizing that capacity in our cold weather and seasonal shelter beds needed to rapidly expand to meet community need during the current cold snap, partners in the Snohomish County Cold Weather Shelter Workgroup have expanded capacity at all sites and have created additional overflow capacity at the Sky Valley location in Monroe. Any shelter that is at full capacity in Snohomish County has the option of transporting individuals to the Sky Valley location which has expanded capacity to serve up to 50 individuals.
Service providers and individuals seeking shelter can continue using the Snohomish Health District’s website that can be found here for the most recent information on locations that are open and hours: https://www.snohd.org/471/Cold-Weather-Shelters.
Cold Weather Shelter providers that reach capacity can offer transport to the Sky Valley location to individuals in need.
