The Eastside Mens Shelter (EMS) operates year round and is an emergency overnight shelter providing men safety. Men in the shelter are provided with a hot meal and a safe place to sleep. The trained staff connect the men to necessary resources, helping them move toward security, stability, and independence.

Location: 515B 116th Ave NE (at Lincoln Center).  

Hours: Overnight services will be from 7:30 pm to 7:30 am. Men are allowed on site beginning at 7:00 pm.

The closest bus route is the 271 bus, which stops at 116 Ave NE and NE 2nd Pl. Walk back North, and the Center is on the left.

Space is provided on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority going to men who spent the previous night at the shelter. The EMS is the only shelter for men on the Eastside that accepts all men based only on behavioral requirements. The mens shelter is staffed by professional, experienced employees and volunteers managed by CFH.

The intake process begins with a conversation by phone. In accordance with our philosophy of assisting men who want to move themselves out of homelessness, we use these intake criteria:
    Must have a current state picture I.D.
    Must allow CFH to run a criminal background check. Anyone with a sex offense crime cannot be a member of the shelter.
    Must be willing to be drug- and alcohol-free, and willing to address any addiction issues.
    Must be willing to work one-on-one with a Housing Navigator.
