24/7 Emergency Shelter at Seattle Center

Beginning Saturday, Seattle’s Human Services Department will open a 24-hour cooling shelter at Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion to give people experiencing homelessness a place to escape the heat. Officials said Thursday that the shelter, staffed by the Salvation Army, will run in addition to the existing one at Exhibition Hall, with enough space for an extra 73 people. The shelter will be open from Saturday morning through Tuesday morning and will provide each guest with meals.

In addition to the Seattle Center space, the city and its outreach partners will deploy for welfare checks, handing out water and other supplies for unsheltered people. In North Seattle, the Lake City Community Center will be open for extended hours on Saturday and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
