You donation made by December 21st will be matched by an anonymous donor up to a total of $25,000.
The last two seasons we were down to one cold weather shelter to serve all of north Snohomish County. This season we have no location in Arlington or Marysville to offer a low barrier cold weather shelter.
While we are offering a motel program for the most vulnerable enrolled in coordinated entry and waiting for housing there are so many community members that will not qualify for this limited program.
We believe a two prong approach is key: motels for those engaged with services and most vulnerable and low barrier shelter for everyone else.
Our community is investing in a temporary shelter that is flexible in placement, a field or parking lot is all that is needed. We have an anonymous donor pledging $25,000 as a match donation.
Please consider a donation to shelter our neighbors experiencing homelessness during the cold weather season.
Checks can be made out to NSCO and mailed to NSCO PO Box 3339, Arlington WA 98223.
Our EIN# is 82-3055297.
