Accessing shelter and housing in Pierce County starts with one phone call.

Pierce County, in partnership with Associated Ministries, Catholic Community Services, Greater Lakes Mental Health Care and Comprehensive Life Resources, offers a centralized intake and referral system for families and individuals at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness. Anyone in need of prevention or re-housing services can call 2-1-1 to be referred to local housing and other resources best suited to their needs.
