Year-Round Shelter

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

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.
