Homeless to Housed Forum on November 9

Monday, October 24, 2011

A forum targeted to community organizations and faith communities will be held at Shoreline City Hall on Wednesday November 9, 2011 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Council Chambers. 

The forum will focus on opportunities to help homeless individuals and families return to stable housing. A panel of experts will provide information on what congregations and community groups can do to meet basic needs, and an update will be provided on the needs of residents in North King County. Topics will include safe car camping, emergency shelter, meal programs and permanent housing.

Homelessness remains a critical social problem throughout King County, including North King County. The Shoreline and Northshore School Districts report almost 250 homeless children attend local schools. Each year the One Night Count of the Homeless finds 35-45 homeless individuals living unsheltered, mostly in cars in North King County. Registration begins at 6pm, and resources will be available before and after the forum to provide organizations with opportunities to participate in the fight to end homelessness in King County.


To RSVP for the Forum please contact Kelly Rider.
