People do not suddenly become chronically homeless. Often circumstances beyond their control cause a downward spiral in which the barriers to re-housing grow at every turn.Until recently, the focus has been on those who are living in shelters or on the street. But the rising tide of homelessness are now families “sofa surfing” or living out of their cars. The Safe Parking Community Network, a vehicle resident outreach organization, invites everyone interested in finding better solutions to a forum on the Stages of Homelessness here in West Seattle:
Alison Eisinger, Seattle King County Coalition on Homelessness, will speak about homelessness locally. Learn about some of the root causes that bring about homelessness, how most families start out camping in their cars, and what we can do about it.
Dinner is included. Starts at 6 pm, program at 6:30 pm. Donations of non-perishables for local food banks are welcome.
