Program Overview

Noel House Main Shelter and Permanent Congregate Housing

In September 2010, Noel House Programs transformed its 40 bed emergency overnight shelter into two unique residential programs: 20 units of permanent congregate housing for chronically homeless women, and 20 units of time-limited shelter (women can stay for up to one year) with 24-hour access.

These changes to our main shelter have had a profound impact on the women we serve. By offering a safe place to be around the clock, the women are better able to address health issues, focus on goals and build relationships and support systems within the community. This model of service delivery allows women to move out of survival mode and allows them to truly thrive. 

Noel House Volunteer-Run Shelters

Volunteers coordinate shelter for 22 homeless women year-round. Our partners in community are:

  • St. John's Catholic Church
  • Temple de Hirsch Sinai
  • Holy Rosary Catholic Church
  • Bethany Community Church

St. Mark’s Emergency Shelter

Each night, 30 women find safety and community at St. Mark’s Emergency Shelter. While this is a staffed shelter, a ministry of dedicated volunteers from St. Mark's Cathedral creates a warm, welcoming environment at bedtime and breakfast.

Women's Referral Center

The Women’s Referral Center is a safe, welcoming place where women can request shelter referrals and transportation to nightly shelters. In partnership with multiple service providers, the Women’s Referral Center refers 180 women nightly to 15 area shelters. Evening meals and hygiene services are also available. The Women's Referral Center operates from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every night of the year. It is located at 2030 Third Avenue in Seattle.

Thank you for visiting. Please join us in creating a compassionate community that advocates for and provides essential services to women experiencing homelessness.
