Spotlight on an Industry
|“As landlords and business owners we need to support our Chamber and be active members. The properties Blue Rooster manages in Fremont are members and I am recommending that all of you do the same. The Fremont Chamber has been instrumental in pushing back against SDOT on the Stone and N. Northlake proposed ROW changes and has helped immensely in keeping SPD front of mind on the Bike Trail encampments, just to name a few of the current topics! We have upcoming issues like the Fremont Seawall that will need advocacy for improvements in our roads. All in all, your support goes a long way in keeping our little village from turning into South Lake Union!”

Reflections from Seattle Human Services Department Acting Director
“Are we making any progress on all the tents we see?” It’s a question I get a lot and my answer is, “Yes, and…”
In 2018, more people were served, more moved from homelessness to housing, and more people living with disabling conditions were stably housed. Our data showed
that 4,227 households moved from homelessness to housing or were prevented from becoming homeless – an increase of 17% over 2017. And, thousands more people were served than ever before. These efforts, in turn, built on earlier work to increase access to hygiene services
and restrooms, and to focus on key at-risk groups like youth homelessness and long-term shelter stayers.
While we are moving more people off the streets and into shelter, Seattle still has too many people outside. That’s when we turn to the City of Seattle’s Navigation Team
, which is comprised of outreach workers, field coordinators, system navigators and police officers that work to connect people living unsheltered to shelter and support services. I want to thank the members of this team for their tremendous work. As a result of their effort and commitment, more people are accessing shelter and coming inside from often brutal circumstances.
HSD has just released second quarter performance metrics which show the team working at a higher capacity, connecting more people to shelter when compared to the first quarter of 2019, and increasing operational capacity to better address unmanaged encampments:
- 16 percent increase in unique individuals engaged by the team;
- 10 percent increase in unique individuals referred to shelters;
- 47 Navigation Team-reserved beds available daily, rising from 17 beds available the previous quarter (meaning more beds available in basic shelters, tiny house villages, and enhanced shelters); and
- 79 more referrals to enhanced shelter and tiny house villages.
While there is still much work to do, we are making progress.
