Time for an Action-Oriented Response
Seattle's unhoused population deserves every opportunity to access services and secure safe and dignified housing. Despite increasing funding, we see more of those in need without a roof over their head. It’s time for a new approach that ensures our financial commitment to reducing homelessness is being spent wisely. As a city, we have a responsibility to organize our resources and prioritize solutions that are getting people out of homelessness and on a path towards self-sufficiency. Once we have a thorough and organized approach in place and all those who want services are offered services, the city needs to re-establish expectations for clean and safe public spaces.
