Veteran Homelessness

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) recently featured a blog post about Operation: WelcomeOneHome, a community-wide collaboration of landlords, Veterans, elected officials, and neighbors working to effectively end Veteran homelessness by December 31, 2015 as part of both a national and countywide campaign. Please let us know if you have interest in participating in this initiative by contacting Dawn Barrett at dawn.barrett@kingcounty.gov.

As of September 2015, 717 Veterans have been housed at a pace of about 80 per month. Despite our progress, there are hundreds more Veterans in our community that need assistance, many of whom have the resources to move into permanent housing but struggle to secure a home in our highly competitive rental market.
