Emergency Men’s Shelter

The Emergency Men’s Shelter (EMS) and Day Center provides a safe, welcoming, resource- rich environment 24 hours a day every day of the year for men experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives and obtain stable income and housing.  Men in the enhanced shelter have access to safe sleeping accommodations, three nutritious meals a day, showers and laundry, storage, mail, haircuts, computers, etc… This low-barrier program serves 100 men experiencing homelessness on the Eastside each day, and between 700-900 men each year.
