Homelessness - Casey Sixkiller

  • We need to continue efforts already underway to expand tiny home villages and the temporary use of hotels so more people can come inside and get connected to the services that they need
  • We need to increase the performance and accountability of the shelter system and its operators to achieve the outcomes we want
  • We need to build 3,000 permanent places for individuals to call home
  • Given that 40 percent of all people served by the City last year were last housed somewhere other than Seattle, we need to double down on a regional response so other cities and communities are part of the solution.
  • Each of these investments must be paired with a renewed commitment to keeping our parks and business districts encampment free.
