NUHSA continues conversation on housing the homeless

From the North Urban Human Services Alliance

Last month, NUHSA held a Resources Training on "How Can I Help?"

The room was packed, and the training served largely to let us know there is so much passion and concern around the challenging issue of homelessness, and that people truly want to know how to make an impact in a positive way.

The issues are daunting and no one person can fix everything. However, together we can begin to influence policy, increase awareness, and create true change.

To that end, NUHSA is re-convening its Homeless to Housed committee, and the community is invited to participate.

The next meeting will be Tuesday, October 25, 4 to 5:30pm, Third Place Commons Stadler conference room (the glass-walled room, upstairs, in the northeast corner near the Kitto Japanese restaurant).

People in our community are already coming up with ideas and proposals to make a positive impact. Now we would like to bring together people with time, energy, ideas, passion, and commitment to make it all happen.

From a possible "Day Center" site in Kenmore, to Shoreline's interest in an affordable housing site on north Aurora, to the renewal of the Vets and Human Services Levy, there is much work to be done but there is also much energy to do it.

History has proven that the people in our community, at every level from individual to corporate to government, are committed to promoting the overall well-being of everyone.
Together, we will work to address the issues surrounding homelessness, and show that North King County continues to lead the charge in building and maintaining communities that value every citizen; that work to ensure everyone in our neighborhoods has the opportunity to thrive.

Join with NUHSA Tuesday, October 25, to be a part of this important work. If you're interested but can't make that meeting, email to be kept informed.
