King County Executive Dow Constantine issued the following statement on the results of One Night Count, an annual count of homeless residents in King County.
"The One Night Count reveals the scope of the human tragedy of homelessness in our region. The results confirm the state of emergency and underscore the urgent need to work together – at every level of government and with our community partners – to create the housing, treatment, employment and other services that thousands of adults, children and families in King County need right now. We continue to call on our Legislature and Congress to recognize this growing humanitarian crisis and take immediate action."
