Pallet Shelter

About Us

The pallet shelter community is the result of a newly developed partnership with local, Everett-based company Pallet. Pallet shelters provide the dignity of private space in a healing community environment. The pallet community is made up of twenty 64-square-foot shelters. Each is designed and constructed with the right balance of efficiency and comfort, including climate-control options. The pallet shelter provides low-barrier access to critical services, a huge stepping stone to long-term recovery.

  • Durable – Pallet shelters are made to last with a 10+ material-year lifespan. They’re resistant to mold, rot, and pests and can be easily cleaned as one resident moves out and another moves in.
  • Comfortable – Insulated walls, heat, and air conditioning provide personal climate control and electricity powers the interior lights and outlets for personal device charging. Spacious with 9-foot vaulted ceilings.
  • Rapid – Made of prefabricated panels that are flat-packed for shipping at scale, each cabin can be assembled in under an hour with minimal tools. Shelters can be disassembled for flat storage or reuse.
  • Cost-effective – Pallet offers a cost-effective price point because they use fiberglass reinforced plastic with a foam insulating core for the panels and shelves. Plus, they use aluminum framing.
  • Safe – Each shelter has a smoke detector, carbon monoxide monitor, egress door, and fire extinguisher. Local fire inspectors independently inspect shelter villages to ensure adherence to local fire safety code requirements.

The pallet shelter community is located off the intersection of Marine Drive and 19th Avenue. Those interested can stop by the green house in front during business hours and ask for an application.
