What About This? @MayorofSeattle’s homelessness dashboard shows nearly 200 tents/RV’s in Sodo. Unfortunately, it does not show exact locations being tracked. I’m trying to figure out who’s responsible for this lot near Airport Way S, across street from BMW dealership. Dashboard Sodo’s got a long way to go. @MayorofSeattle’s office says there are likely more RV’s/ tents in this neighborhood. Frustrating for some who want exact locations and addresses of current encampments on dashboard. #s will be updated quarterly.
Clear Distinction @MayorofSeattle announced that most of the outreach, support services, shelter referrals, and anything to do with getting homeless into housing will now be in the hands of @KC_RHA. The Mayor’s office will still be handling encampment clearings and enforcement. Accountability It’s now very clear. All the questions about the hundreds of millions of dollars being poured into “housing first,” must now be directed at @KC_RHA. And CEO Marc Dones is asking for millions more for this plan. Who’s following the money trail and tracking results? City Outreach Still Happening Btw, @MayorofSeattle office will retain control of the HOPE Team, so shelter referrals and beds set aside for that team stay with the City.
