Pallet Shelter


About Us

The Tulalip Pallet Shelter Community comprises 20 low-barrier units that aim to assist Tulalip tribal members who are homeless and require shelter with minimal hurdles. This approach enables more community members to access the services they need.

The Tulalip Pallet Shelter offers a range of services, including low-barrier shelter, communal kitchen and living room, meals and nutrition, and linkage to additional services such as housing, mental health services, SUD services, and harm reduction. The shelter also provides recurrent "Community Health Days" and peer support. Additionally, it has 24/7 security.

The pallet shelter community is the result of a partnership with Pallet, a local Everett-based company. Pallet shelters provide the dignity of private space in a healing community environment. Each shelter is designed and constructed with the right balance of efficiency and comfort, including climate-control options. The shelters are resistant to mold, rot, and pests and can be easily cleaned as one resident moves out and another moves in.

The insulated walls, heat, and air conditioning provide personal climate control, and there is electricity to power the interior lights and outlets for charging personal devices. The space is roomy, with 9-foot vaulted ceilings. Each shelter has a smoke detector, carbon monoxide monitor, egress door, and fire extinguisher.

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.
