The Salvation Army NW Seattle Catherine Booth House
1101 Pike Street
Catherine Booth House is a confidentially located, emergency shelter for adults and children (meaning boys and girls under the age of 18) escaping domestic violence. It is a fully furnished secured 12-unit apartment complex with 24/7 staffing where each person or family has their own unit. The goal of our shelter is to provide a healing atmosphere where survivors can gain inner strength, and each person can have time and space to explore options for continuing safety. We strive to provide our services in a culturally sensitive setting that respects survivors’ choices and supports families of all backgrounds.
Trained in advocacy based counseling, our advocates first initially help families with basic needs such as food, clothing, hygiene and medical supplies, etc. After clients have had a chance to settle in, we work collaboratively with each client to identify support needs and resources, create a safety plan, and provide domestic violence education and referrals to helpful community resources..
CBH also provides children’s programming. Our in-house Children’s Advocates work with to provide therapeutic and educational children’s activities, parenting help, and advocacy to access appropriate children’s services in the community.
