About Us 


Cocoon House empowers young people, families, and the community to break the cycle of homelessness through outreach, housing and prevention.

Established in 1991, Cocoon House has been Snohomish County's only resource exclusively serving homeless and at-risk youth ages 12-24 (housing up to age 18). We believe that every child deserves a home and the opportunity to achieve his or her fullest potential. Cocoon House provides youth housing and other critical community -based services to youth, caregivers, families and the community.

From its grassroots beginnings, Cocoon has responded to the changing needs of our community. Since inception we have increased shelter space by 350% and now house more than 230 youth each year. In addition, through street outreach, prevention, education and a youth drop-in resource center, we reach over 1,500 youth, parents, and community members annually.

Since 1991, Cocoon House has grown into an all-encompassing, continuum of services that strengthens families while helping teens to reclaim their youth and discover their values, strengths and talents. This enables them to face the future with stability, dignity and purpose. Our services include emergency shelter, long-term transitional housing, case management, advocacy, and prevention.
