What is the Thurston County Resource Hub?

The Resource Hub, located in Olympia on-site at the Thurston County Courthouse Complex, is a drop-in resource center for people with behavioral health needs who are impacted by the justice system.

At the Resource Hub, we understand that life is complicated, and during tough times it can make a big difference to have someone to help navigate community resources that make life safer and more stable. If you need assistance with Behavioral Health, Employment and/or Education, Housing, Public Benefits, Healthcare, Legal Support, or something else, representatives from County, State, and community-based social service programs will be on-site at the Hub ready to help explore options for support.

At the Hub, we believe that by making connection to resources urgent and accessible, we can reduce repeat involvement in the justice system for individuals with behavioral health needs, and support the safety, health, and wellbeing of all Thurston County residents.

Heat assessments & Coordinated Entry 

Coordinated Entry is a process developed to ensure that people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access to resources and are quickly identified, assessed for, and referred and/or connected to housing assistance based on their strengths and needs.

Eligibility - The Thurston County Coordinated Entry system serves Thurston County residents experiencing literal homelessness. Literal homelessness is defined as follows:

Living and sleeping outside

Sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation

Staying in a shelter

Fleeing/attempting to flee domestic violence

Exiting an institution (jail, mental health facility, etc.….where you resided for up to 90 days and were in a shelter or a place not meant for human habitation immediately before entering that institution.

If an individual meets this criteria, they can participate in an assessment to determine further eligibility. This is called a HEAT assessment.
