Community Conversation: Housing the Homeless

This event has passed.

Two years after Seattle and King County declared a “State of Emergency” on homelessness, the numbers continue to rise. The 2017 annual count found nearly 12,000 people living in shelters, on the streets, and in tents and cars in Seattle and King County.

Join Enrique Cerna as he moderates an important community conversation that examines homelessness. Hear personal stories, learn about current initiatives aimed at increasing housing, and find out what is being done to address complex issues related to the homeless crisis.

Panelists include:

  • Sara Vander Zanden, Facing Homelessness
  • Gary Cashman, Wounded Warriors Project
  • Mark Putnam, All Home
  • Colleen Echo-Hawk, Chief Seattle Club

Presented in partnership with King County TV. Photo credit: Matt M. McKnight, Visual Journalist, Crosscut.
