Forty four pallet shelters are on their way to Wenatchee in an effort to reduce homeless in that city. The Wenatchee Rescue Mission is spearheading the project which will locate the units on their property, where they already provide 24 hour food and shelter service.

The pallet shelter is called a low barrier unit and is manufactured in Everett by the Pallet Shelter Company. The units offer heat and air-conditioning as well as bedding and space for storage. The City of Wenatchee's Community Development Director Glen DeVries is working with the rescue mission to fulfill their requirements.

The group has ordered 43 two-person units and a single four-person unit to provide emergency shelter for families. The units will also be ADA-compliant.

DeVries says units can be set up in about 45 minutes and are relocatable. Cost of the units is just under $643,500 and should be delivered in mid-April with units ready for occupancy this summer.
