Funding for new 24/7 Shelter Options

The more time those experiencing homelessness can spend sheltered, the less they are subject to the indignities and dangers of living on the streets. To that end, the City is providing funding to Community Youth Services (CYS) Rosie's Place so that they may move to 24/7 operations. In addition to providing overnight shelter, Rosie’s Place will now open its doors to youth during the day.

Additional 24/7 Shelters

Union Gospel Mission offers a 24/7 shelter and is expanding its services to respond to the homelessness crisis. The Family support Center offers 24-hour shelter to families through its Pear Blossom Place facility.

Shipping containers used as secure storage units

Secure Storage

Two community partnerships created much needed secure storage options for the unsheltered population. The City has contracted with Union Gospel Mission to host the first secure storage site on their property. The Port of Olympia has donated and will fabricate the locked storage container. Users will have access twice a day, seven days a week.
