Homelessness is a complex and challenging problem, but it is solvable. We believe we can create the political will to add the resources and make the policy changes necessary to make homelessness rare, brief, and one-time. Our priorities build on the current momentum in Washington state to stop the pipeline of homeless teens becoming homeless adults and the efforts to ensure access to safe, affordable housing for all across our state.
It’s unacceptable that so many young people are sleeping on the street. As a community, we can do better. We can and will come together to solve this problem.
