Pierce County Overnight Shelters

Below are the Overnight Shelters open to the general community. Other shelters, such as the Stability Site, are operating but require referrals through other agencies. Only a few shelters accept walk-ins, and those often have a waitlist, so it is best to contact the shelter prior to arrival. Many shelters list open beds - if it is just a few beds, it is worth a phone call to ensure availability. A list of all known current shelters is also available.
