THe New Bethlehem Day Center
for families experiencing homelessness on the eastside
IS located in the Salt House basement
Monday - Saturday | 2:00pm - 8:00pm
Sunday | 7:00am - 8:00pm (starting March 3)
Salt House has partnered with The New Bethlehem Project (www.nbpshelter.org) and Catholic Community Services (www.ccsww.org) to create a day shelter in our unused basement to meet the growing needs of homelessness on the Eastside. The Day Center opened on November 6th, 2016 and has already made a huge a difference in the lives of homeless families in and around Kirkland. In the coming year, we expect to see hours expanding and volunteer needs increasing.
HOW CAN I HELP?

Specific donations are always needed. Please visit this link to sign-up and to see the items currently needed.

Most donations may be delivered 7 days a week, 2:00 PM - 8:00 PM. Our space is limited, so we currently CANNOT accept donations of clothing, toys, furniture, food (beyond donations of meals which are scheduled), etc. Thank you for your generosity!
