SEATTLE -- An extra 135 winter shelter beds for homeless men and women are being added in King County, Wash., due to the efforts of the county, United Way of King County and several cities.
Beds have been added in downtown Seattle, Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond and Sammamish.
The King County Administration Building shelter for homeless men in downtown Seattle now offers 100 indoor beds nightly.
The cities of Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, Redmond and Sammamish have collaborated to increase funding for shelter this winter.
A statement issued by the county says United Way funding will also support the creation of a new winter shelter for a maximum 40 men, women and children in North Bend and the establishment of a winter shelter for as many as 20 women in Kent.
The county said about 1,700 shelter beds are available nightly for single adults in the area.
