Skagit Housing

In Skagit County, we offer three housing programs:

HUSLY Emergency Shelter

The HUSLY (Housing Under-Served Low-income Youth) Emergency Shelter is for young adults age 18-24 who need a place to stay immediately. We provide food, a bed, showers, and staff support.
You can stay for up to 90 days. Skagit HUSLY is open 24 hours a day.

Note: HUSLY is a small, 4-bed shelter accessed through our main application process (NOT first come, first served). To find a place to stay more quickly,
call the Friendship House to request a bed.

Transitional Living Program

The Transitional Living Program (TLP) is an independent living program for homeless single or parenting individuals or couples
ages 18-24 (or ages 16-17 for emancipated minors).  

Northwest Youth Services provides you with:

        · An apartment for up to 18 months

        · Help to find a job

        · Access to health/support services

        · Your own savings account to save for long term housing
          (30% of income each month)


Permanent Supportive Housing

The Permanent Housing Program is a long-term, independent living program for homeless single, couples, or parenting young adults,
