Seattle and King County winter shelters offering beds for 215 individuals originally slated to close on April 15 will remain open for two more months through June 15. The City will extend 75 emergency shelter beds at City Hall and the winter shelter beds at Angeline’s Women’s winter shelter through June 15. In partnership with the City, King County will extend its 100 winter shelter beds at the King County Administration Building through June 15.The shelter extensions are possible in part due to an additional $150,000 in funding allocated by the City Council. A planning group convened by the Seattle Human Services Department, including representatives from King County, the YWCA, Operation Night Watch, Salvation Army, WHEEL and the Seattle-King County Coalition on Homelessness, met to discuss shelter needs and make recommendations on shelter extensions.
