What is the Union Women’s Shelter?

We are a volunteer-run shelter for women in Seattle, located in the South Lake Union neighborhood. We seek to offer overnight shelter to women experiencing homelessness in an environment of dignity, respect, love and safety.

We started our partnership with Noel House as a community-based shelter in September 2014. Noel House Programs provides safe, comfortable shelter to a diverse community of homeless women, particularly those most vulnerable.

We are generally open on Monday nights.


If someone is in need, just be there.

We are always looking for volunteers
to help with set-up, meal prep,
and just being there for our guests.
