Hearing for year-round Snoqualmie homeless shelter set for Feb. 3

The shelter would run until 2024 and provide year-round housing for the valley’s homeless residents.

Snoqualmie could have a new year-round homelessness shelter, if an application from Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services is approved.

The application was submitted to the city on Jan. 20, and outlines the service provider’s plan to open a shelter capable of housing 15 adults and accompanied minors, seven days a week, for three years. It would mark a significant increase in the level of service available for those experiencing homelessness in the Snoqualmie Valley.

The proposed shelter would also provide community homeless services, and be located at the Renton-Pickering American Legion Post 79. It would open on March 21, and operate for three years, through early 2024. Staff from Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services would be working on-site 24/7, with quiet hours from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.

A public meeting on the proposal is scheduled for Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. before the Hearing Examiner.
