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.
