Partnering with Landlords to End Homelessness | By Mark Putnam (@MarkPutnamCEHKC)
Each year in Seattle/King County, about 10,000 “households” spend the night “houseless.” These youth, individuals, and families spend vulnerable nights outside, in cars, in unsafe places.
People experiencing homelessness need homes. This is the simple solution to ending homelessness, right? The complexity comes in finding, and funding, the homes. Read on to find out how stakeholders in King County, Washington, are succeeding at both.

Ending Youth Homelessness: A Call to Action Forty Years in the Making | by William H. Bentley (@ACFHHS ) and Laura Green Zeilinger (@ZLauraJeanne)
Forty years ago, the U.S. government took the bold step of making the landmark Runaway and Homeless Youth Act, or RHYA, the law of the land. RHYA is the only Federal law that highlights the need for and funds critical services for youth experiencing homelessness. With continued funding for street outreach, basic center and transitional living programs, RYHA provides critical services and support to runaway and homeless youth and plays an important role in the effort end youth homelessness by 2020, a goal set in Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
