Shelter at Night

 If you need shelter, please call our intake line at 425-894-6802.

Our Year-Round Shelter Program operates from 7:00 pm until 7:00 am every day of the year. We accept homeless men 18 years and older who have a connection to the Eastside. Our shelter is housed in Eastside churches, mostly in Bellevue, and moves every month to a new church. Other support churches provide meals and volunteers for the shelter.

We provide:

A safe warm place to sleep

Three meals a day

Storage for belongings

Case Management

Medical and dental services

Job assistance

Training to prepare for housing

Bus passes


Laundry facilities



The intake process begins with a conversation by phone. In accordance with our philosophy of helping men who want to move themselves out of homelessness, we use these intake criteria:

  • Must have a current state picture I.D.
  • Must allow CFH to run a criminal background check. Anyone with a sex offense crime cannot be a member of the shelter.
  • Must be willing to be drug- and alcohol-free, and willing to address any addiction issues.
  • Must be willing to work one-on-one with a Case Manager.
