Your King County Housing Authority
Transforming Lives Through Housing in North King County

Thursday, May 16th
4:00 - 5:30pm 
Ballinger Commons

Have you wondered what the housing authority does, where they have properties, or what kind of an impact they have in a community? Join us for an overview of the several King County Housing Authority (KCHA) properties in North King County and learn about their impact on our community. 

KCHA provides rental housing and assistance to more than 55,000 people, supporting the health and well-being of residents while also providing community centers and educational programs.

This event is being sponsored as part of Affordable Housing Week to inspire action for housing affordability throughout the Puget Sound region. Check out the numerous programs, tours, events and speakers being offered throughout King County here.

“Trickle Down Town” 
Film Screening and Hopelink Tour

Sunday, May 19th
4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Join us for a special screening of Trickle Down Town, followed by a facilitated discussion and tour of Hopelink, a local emergency services provider and food bank.

Tomasz Biernacki’s new thought-provoking documentary about the homeless crisis in Seattle deftly interweaves in-depth stories of community members who are living the crisis on the streets with interviews of political leaders and community advocates, along with vivid images of the current state of affairs and a poignant examination of the roots of homelessness in the region. 

Biernacki paints a picture of a region struggling to come to grips with an unprecedented emergency and finds a few glimmers of hope.

Biernacki says, “I have discovered that most people have... knee-jerk reactions and false beliefs... about the homeless. 
"They see the tents, the RVs, the addicted people who have untreated mental and physical health issues, and instead of doing something to help their neighbors, they degrade, cast away, and add insult to injury. 
"I want people to see that there are concrete, simple steps people can take every day to help the situation. It’s going to have to be a grassroots effort.”

The event is free and open to the public. Donations are gladly accepted.

Who is welcome to attend our events? Everyone! Members of the community, local leaders, elected officials, business owners, agencies and faith communities all welcome!

RSVP is appreciated but not required:

Sponsored by NUHSA (North Urban Human Services Alliance) and in partnership with representatives from the Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park, King County Library System, the Cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, Ronald United Methodist Church, Hopelink, and Center for Human Services
