Abernathy Shelter is a homeless shelter in the southeast corner of Seattle’s downtown district. It’s situated in a poverty-stricken neighborhood of aging tenements and abandoned businesses; the corporations seem to have little interest in the area, leaving it to decay while they pursue more profitable areas of the city.
The shelter provides basic food, housing, and limited medical care to the invariably poor and often SINless residents in the area. It is financially supported by various “private donors” who “prefer to remain anonymous”. In truth, the shelter is supported by a handful of socially oriented street shamans and shadowrunners; in return, the shelter serves as a safehouse and source of information.
