The Snoqualmie Valley Winter Shelter will be closing early this year, staff members announced recently. The church-based seasonal shelter, currently located at Fall City United Methodist Church, had been scheduled to remain open through Wednesday, April 26, but because of a budget shortfall, the shelter will now close on Sunday, April 2.
The day shelter, open at the Snoqualmie American Legion Hall from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, is slated to remain open for the month of April.
Shelter staff could not be reached for comment, but according to a press release, the shelter is continuing to seek grant funding, so the closing dates could still change.
By the time the overnight shelter closes this year, staff project it will have provided 133 bed nights and warm meals to the homeless residents of the Snoqualmie Valley.
