'One Table' – a community approach to homelessness and affordability
King County Executive Dow Constantine has joined with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus in announcing a new regional approach to tackling the issues of homelessness and housing affordability. "One Table" will bring together government, business leaders, service providers, philanthropy, advocates and people with lived experience of homelessness and local residents to develop innovative solutions to the homelessness crisis.
More than 11,000 people on any day are homeless across King County. Gathering all voices to one table is an effort to maximize time, resources, ideas and innovation to get the strongest outcomes in the shortest time and move people quickly from homeless to housed.
