Hours for potential shelter placement: 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm nightly.

Each night, we have a limited number of off-site shelter beds available for men and women. To qualify for a bed at a Nightwatch off-site shelter, you must show up in person at our Shelter Dispatch Center. There is no guarantee that shelter will be available on any given night.

Our homeless guests are encouraged to “travel light.” There is no room at Nightwatch shelters to store belongings.

Our Shelter Dispatch Center location:

302 14th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144
