Count Us In - All Home King County

Count Us In

Friday, January 27 is Count Us In, King County’s Point In Time Count for all populations. On this day, volunteers will be asked to work in teams of 2-3 to conduct a visual count of individuals experiencing homelessness across King County. Teams are comprised of community volunteers and expert guides (individuals currently/previously experiencing homelessness), who will walk/drive all over their assigned routes beginning in the early morning (specific start time to be determined). Volunteers are expected to have a cell phone and and to walk approximately 2-3 miles if necessary.

Volunteers with cars will be asked to help transport their team members on the day of the count. In 2017, nearly all street count activities will occur between 2am and 6am. In addition, we will be working with local leadership to “pilot” count activities at daybreak in a handful of newly counted/ rural areas of King County.

Additionally, all volunteers are asked to attend a one-hour training session prior to count day. Details on training dates and times are available here: http://allhomekc.org/king-county-point-in-time-pit-count/ Expert guides will be recruited separately through a different process.

Mayor Ed Murray

TONIGHT! Reception: 6 p.m., PACCAR Atrium in Pigott Building

Conversation: 6:20 p.m.-7:40 p.m., Pigott Auditorium

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will discuss strategies and goals for addressing individual and family homelessness. Topics will include the delivery and effectiveness of services, outreach methods used in California and Washington, challenges in funding and the innovative approaches Seattle and San Francisco are implementing to make homelessness rare, brief and one time only. Seattle University Master of Public Administration Director Larry Hubbell and multi-media journalist Joni Balter will interview the mayors. Sponsored by Seattle University Institute of Public Service and the Project on Family Homelessness. This event is FREE and open to the public.

I'm looking forward to a discussion of homelessness with San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee this evening at Seattle University.

Both our cities, as well as many other communities, face a homelessness crisis with many causes and few easy solutions. Through sustained efforts we are going to have positive impacts on people’s lives, but cities alone cannot end homelessness.

A key measure of our success as a city is how we care for our most vulnerable residents, including those experiencing homelessness. We have a solid long-term plan in Pathways Home and the City, alongside service providers, is working every day with people experiencing homelessness to find individualized solutions to help them. We’re focused on housing first and support services, including low-barrier models pioneered in San Francisco.
