Friendship House provides two emergency shelters for people struggling with homelessness. We are the largest emergency housing provider in Skagit County and the only single men's shelter. Friendship House offers a self-sufficiency program that focuses on helping residents find employment and stable housing. Our goal is that each person will leave with the tools they need to live a healthy, productive lifestyle.
Residents may live in the shelter for up to 90 days while working on an individual action plan developed with House Managers. Friendship House provides residents with meals, clothing, personal care items and supportive services during their stay. Residents of our houses agree to follow house rules including being clean and sober, refraining from panhandling, following their action plans, being nonviolent and participating in household chores and donation hours.
Clients deemed inappropriate for Friendship House are referred to other services in the area.

“Working through the Friendship House program got me exactly what I wanted. If you really make it your own, it will make a difference!”
