Wenatchee buying 45 small shelters for homeless

Nov 24, 2023Nov 24, 2023

An Everett company will provide 45 small shelters as temporary housing for Wenatchee residents living with homelessness.

The city voted Thursday to buy the two-bed structures from Pallet PBC, a firm that's provided its shelters to homeless outreach centers in the cities of Burlington and Everett, as well as others nationwide.

The 45 structures will rest at the site of Wenatchee Rescue Mission, which is currently a key partner in the city's efforts to help those without shelter.

The insulated units are fiberglass-reinforced plastic with aluminum framing.

Each features folding bunks and storage, as well as heating and cooling units, fire extinguisher, smoke detectors and emergency doors.

The city council approved $643,000 for the purchase, with $536,000 coming from a Department of Commerce grant.
