Homelessness Outreach Town Hall | District 7
As many of you have likely read, the City Council recently voted 5-4 to defund Seattle’s homelessness outreach entity known as the Navigation Team. The Navigation Team is housed within the Human Services Department and composed of police and social workers. They provide services to people living in unsanctioned encampments, make offers of shelter to people experiencing homelessness, and in some cases, most controversially, remove unsanctioned encampments.
I was one of the council members who voted against defunding the Navigation Team. While it is undeniable that the practices of the Navigation Team need to be reassessed & changed, I generally do not support removing a service before a replacement strategy can be stood up. However, the vote has been made, I respect the decision of the Council, & look forward to working with my colleagues to craft a successor strategy to meet the scale of the crisis in front of us.
This Wednesday, August 19th, at 3:30 p.m., I will be having a town hall with service providers and community leaders to discuss new ways we can provide outreach and services to our neighbors living in unsanctioned encampments as well as the outreach services already done by nonprofits.
The panel will include:
- Executive Director Colleen Echohawk from the Chief Seattle Club
- Executive Director Sharon Lee from the Low Income Housing Institute
- Co-Director Chloe Gale from REACH
- Alison Eisinger from the King County Coalition on Homelessness
- A representative from The Urban League.
The town hall will be recorded and posted online for later viewing if you cannot make it on the 19th.

Art Cars Tailgate in Fremont @ U-Park Lot #75, August 22nd, from 11am-3pm
The Seattle Art Cars have been caravan-ing around the City, and environs, through the COVID-19 crisis, bringing joy and silliness to senior living sites, low-income housing buildings, and childcare centers. Now they are invited to visit the Center of the Universe with a socially distant tailgate! The cars will park higgledy-piggledy around the U-Park lot at N 35th St & Phinney Ave N, to allow the drivers to socialize – and passer-by to photograph the cars from the sidewalks, or across the street!
