"Every night, thousands of our neighbors sleep outside without shelter, in some of the most inhumane and dangerous conditions you can imagine. While every single person experiencing homelessness in Seattle has their own story, what is true across Seattle is the need to help our neighbors move to safer places as we work together to build a better future for all who call Seattle home." - Mayor Jenny Durkan

Seattle is coming together to address the crisis of homelessness and to help our neighbors living unsheltered move into safer places and toward a permanent home and better future. Seattleites recognize that the crisis has been years in the making, and it cannot be solved overnight. But the City of Seattle is deploying new and unprecedented resources in coordination with our partners at King County to make progress - from doing more to prevent people from falling into homelessness, to building thousands of new affordable housing units, to deploying new bridge housing and shelter units, to picking up trash and waste.
