A.L.I.V.E. (Alternatives to Living In a Violent Environment) Emergency Shelter Program
YWCA Kitsap County operates the A.L.I.V.E. Emergency Shelter Program for survivors and their children fleeing an immediately dangerous situation due to domestic violence. Guests in the shelter have access to:
24/7 Advocacy Services
24/7 Crisis Intervention
24/7 Safety Planning
Mental Health Services
Legal Advocacy Services
Housing Advocacy Services
Resources and Referrals
Phone Screening Required
Emergency shelter services require a phone screening. If the survivor is unable to stay in the shelter, advocates will assist in identifying alternative locations for the survivor to access a safe place to stay. Call 1-800-500-5513 to access a screening.
Can pets stay in the shelter?
No. Unfortunately, the shelter is not structured in a way that permits survivors to bring their pets. However, YWCA recognizes that pets are family, too, and partners with Kitsap Humane Society and other organizations to center pet safety and care while survivors live in emergency shelter.
