SideWalk House, 1139 5th Ave SE
Referred to as a "one stop shop” for shelter and housing services. Offers financial assistance, rapid rehousing programs, and other resources for houseless individuals.
From their website:
SideWalk helps people experiencing homelessness in Thurston County, Washington. While we focus on adults without children, we are committed to serving everyone experiencing homelessness. If you are a youth under 24, part of a family with children, or a veteran, we may ask you first if you’ve tried to get help from other organizations.
Due to limited resources, SideWalk financial assistance is only available for people who are sleeping outdoors, in cars, or staying at homeless shelters. If you are currently couch surfing or are worried that you will become homeless, SideWalk volunteers can help connect you to other resources.
In certain situations SideWalk offers an extra helping hand to help highly vulnerable people move into a new home and connect them to other resources. Due to limited resources, we conduct a short, in-person survey to determine vulnerability. Please ask your SideWalk volunteer if you would like more information about this service.
Even if you don’t meet our eligibility requirements for financial assistance, please come in and talk to us. Our volunteers will listen, help you strategize, and connect you to other resources that may be able to help you.
