December Forum — Homelessness: A New Approach? Or More of the Same? 7 p.m.

Thank you to all who joined us for us for this free virtual forum on Homelessness. Here are additional resources you may find helpful:

Chronic Homelessness: A Crossroad is a project by former Governor Christine Gregoire which describes an alternative to encampment sweeps and a solution to chronic homelessness. This alternative approach is endorsed by business leaders in the Puget Sound region.

Marc Dones, CEO of the King County Regional Homelessness Authority, and Crosscut report David Kroman discuss Solving Homelessness.

9 Steps for Addressing Seattle’s Homelessness Crisis by Ron Davis  Sept. 13, 2021.

Watch LWVSKC's December, 2019 Forum on Homelessness.

Event Description:
The program will first review the many causes and effects of homelessness, and current approaches to prevent and mitigate this county-wide problem. It will focus on proven methods to help the many people living on our sidewalks, in our parks, and other public places, and explore best practices for responding to public health and safety concerns.

A second point of focus will be the transition to a regional approach for preventing and reducing homelessness. The newly operational King County Regional Homelessness Authority will be consolidating those efforts as of January 2022. Two years ago, our Forum on Homelessness featured the legislative work taking place to create the Authority. Now we will focus on the nascent operations of that Authority.

Erica C. Barnett, Publisher/Editor of PubliCola, will moderate our panel discussion.

Panelists include:

— Marc Dones, Chief Executive Officer, King County Regional Homelessness Authority (KCRHA)

— Alison Eisinger, Executive Director, Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness (SKCCH pronounced “Skitch”)

— Daniel Malone, Executive Director, Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC)

— Cynthia Stewart, Housing and Homeless Issue Chair, League of Women Voters of Washington (LWVWA)
