  • Invested in undoing systems of oppression; committed to social justice and racial equity
  • Have the time and enthusiasm for community service
  • Have lived experience engaging with the homelessness system
  • Willing to participate and grow your fundraising skills

About ROOTS Young Adult Shelter


4541 19th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105, US

Mission Statement

ROOTS Young Adult Shelter is a University District organization based in compassion and committed to social justice that fosters change and empowers human potential by providing critical services to street-involved, homeless, and other low-income persons and through supporting service providers and faith communities in creating a comprehensive network.


ROOTS Young Adult Shelter serves homeless individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 and is the only shelter program in Seattle specifically addressing the needs of homeless young adults. These young people are too old to access youth shelter programs but often feel unwelcome or threatened in emergency programs serving older single adults. YAS services include: clean bedding and sheets; dinner and hot breakfast; healthy and hygiene supplies and services, including laundry and showers; onsite case management and referral to other support and transitional services; visits by healthcare providers, including public health nurse and acupuncturist; educational materials related to risk avoidance, harm reduction, and other area programs; supportive and nurturing relationships between program staff and guests.
