Our Houses


We currently provide high quality living quarters in many different houses throughout Pierce County with bed space for approximately 150 beds.  Houses approved by DOC are added as needed. Some of our homes were built in the 1890s and all of them have been refurbished to accommodate the new residents. There are plans in the works for acquiring houses in some of the surrounding counties.


We accept both men and women residents on a case by case basis. However, we do not accept anyone with children.   


Each house has a resident manager who typically trades rent for management duties.


We are always looking for ways to expand the number of beds that we can provide our clients. If you own a house and would be interested in joining our network of homes that can be used and managed by White Feather Re-Entry for resident housing, please contact Lesta Rogers at 253-380-5618. She will get back to you.   

Terms of Eviction


If you are evicted for any reason, you will be escorted from your room by either the house manager and/or the owner. If you refuse to leave the police will be called to assist in the eviction process. There you will pack your belongings, turn in your keys, and be escorted off the premises. Your household items may be stored for later pickup if you do not have a way to transport them. These items will be stored for no more than two weeks unless special arrangements have been made. No unused rent will be refunded.

Veterans


If you are an honorably discharged veteran, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may be able to provide assistance with your housing needs. The VA has established the Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF) program to assist Veterans families and /or Veterans who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness end their housing crisis and stabilize in housing. Contact the VA for more information.  www.va.gov

Housing Information

Drug / Alcohol Testing


Because this is a drug and alcohol free housing environment, residents must sign and agree to random drug / alcohol tests (UAs) while residing at any of the White Feather Re-Entry houses. The tests are processed by Lesta Rogers. If there is a dispute of the test results an outside lab will perform an independent test of the sample. These house UAs are in addition to any DOC UAs that are done. If a UA test is found to be positive for drug activity the resindets CCO or counselor will be notified. The CCO or counselor will recommend appropriate action.


Strict rules for drug and alcohol use are enforced for public safety as well as the safety of other residents and the community.  

Applying for Bed Space


1) To apply for bed space a "Rental Application" must be filled out and sent to Lesta Rogers for consideration.  See the contact page for mail or email addresses. If the individual requesting bed space is currently under community supervision or is incarcerated, the "Authorization For Release of Information" form must be filled out, signed, and returned with the application.   


2) Also, a "Rental Agreement" must be filled out, signed, and returned with the application. Included in this agreement is a copy of the "House Rules" form, "Terms of Eviction" form, and a "Consent for Alcohol/Drug Testing" form.
