Anyone with a Social Security number who is not a dependent of anyone else should be eligible for a check under the income caps. The IRS stimulus webpage has been updated to include a form non-filers who also do not receive benefits from the Social Security administration may use to enter their information and receive their stimulus payment.

The Solution if you sign up to get the stimulus check but do not have an address:
You must include the business name:
1: For men only if you have EVER stayed here. Everett Gospel Mission, 3711 Smith Ave, Everett, WA 98201
2: For men - use this address: The Salvation Army, 1108 State Ave, Marysville, WA 98270
3: All women - use this address: Esther's Place 2936 Rockefeller Ave, Everett, WA 98201
The Stimulus Checks will take up to three months to arrive if they being mailed. So, during the next three months Angel Resource Connection will help people get prepared to getting their checks:
1: Get your ID. If your ID was lost or stolen ARC with help you get a voucher at DSHS and pay for your ID at DMV.
2: Get a Bank Account and dept card. Once you have your ID ARC will help you open a bank account on-line with BECU.
ARC is helping the homeless set goals, make a wish list, and plan ahead on how to get the most out their money! Without a plan this money will go fast!
ARC wants to help solve this problem by:
1: Helping people get a phone to connect with resources.
2: Working with the community to find wish list items that get donate or sold at a discount.
3: Help put people in contact with the resources they need.
ARC can not fix a broken system, we can excel in helping more people get into housing and have access to resources to help end their homelessness.
Behind the scenes of our food and clothes outreach program, we work hand-and-hand with local agencies to get everyone signed up to get a housing voucher. Once they get a voucher, we work with them to find an apartment and even help them fill it with donated furniture from the community.
While people are on the long-term waiting list to get a housing voucher, which typically takes a couple of years, people are hungry and cold most the year. So we provide food and clothes to help them survive.
We strive to make progress in other ways, including ARC spearheading signing up the homeless to get their stimulus checks. ARC solved a big problem when we secured mailing addresses for both men and women to get their mail. Now, all homeless people in Snohomish County can get Social Security payments, food stamps, and housing vouchers. This never happened before! We also provide phones to set up interviews, jobs, and housing applications as well as transportation to get to interviews and meetings.
Unfortunately, because of the bad behavior of a many, this growing population is often labeled and treated as drug users and criminals.
Most of the people we serve don't choose to be homeless, but many are because they cannot afford rent due to job loss, domestic violence, death of a spouse or partner, physical and emotional disabilities, and no family to ask for help. With recent economic struggles due to COVID-19, many of these women and families with kids are forced to live in their cars.
We are working hard and constantly reassessing how ARC can help people get out of the homelessness condition.
