On Wednesday John Hull of the Everett Gospel Mission made a presentation before the Everett City Council Health and Human Services Committee. A little over two years ago, the Everett Gospel Mission opened the first Pallet Shelter Village behind the Men’s Mission in the 3700 block of Smith Avenue.

The village began with twenty units and since that time another twenty have been added along with more restrooms, showers, staff and services. Mr. Hull pointed out all that they have learned over the past two years and the changes made to improve the program. Currently two more Pallet Shelter Villages are in the works for Everett, Washington. An 8-unit project behind Faith Lutheran Church at Cady and Madison to be occupied by families and a pallet shelter project proposed for city-owned land at the corner of Sievers-Duecy and Glenwood Boulevard. This would consist of 20 shelters to be occupied by single mothers with children.

Mr. Hull was very upfront on what worked, what didn’t and the learning curve that comes with such a program. If you have a real interest in how Pallet Shelters are working in Everett, watch the entire video below. It runs about an hour.
