help the homeless

Open a city owned building to house the homeless. There are way too many needs for few beds at night. The city has buildings it can use for this. To help the homeless-. This would not cost any "new cost" to the city. How could it? Meanwhile, Empower the homless, help them find jobs, and more suitable housing. Everyone is hurting right now, and the homeless can not be forgotten.

Seattle should build transitional housing for the homeless

Seattle should build transitional housing for the homeless During the 2010 Unsheltered Homeless Count, almost 3,000 people were sleeping outside.

land for vets

I think Nickelsville should have their land and see if what they build will help others who need decent shelter. This would also mean land for vets since many are vets.

This unit has too many employees. Secondly get more agencies of color, civic groups, faith based organization ...more »

Homelessness and Neighborhoods

It seems that the city of Seattle has given SHARE and various churches the right to make decisions about neighborhoods that do not include participation of the residents of those neighborhoods. Putting homeless people in tents in the middle of winter in Seattle is NOT a solution to homelessness! Why can't the city put the money we are currently giving to SHARE into establishing warm, water-tight shelters (eg, buildings) ...more »
