More than 8,000 people experience homelessness on any given night in the suburban cities, urban centers, and rural towns of King County. In order to create solutions to address this issue, the Committee to End Homelessness in King County has produced “A Roof Over Every Bed in King County: Our Community’s Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness.” The focus of this plan is to end homelessness within ten years through strategies that emphasize permanent housing alternatives and support services. Six principle actions have been identified as fundamental to ending homelessness:

1. Prevent Homelessness

2. Coordinate Leadership and Initiatives to End Homelessness Countywide

3. Build and Sustain the Political Will and Community Support to End Homelessness

4. Secure 9,500 Units of Housing for Homeless Persons

5. Deliver Flexible Culturally Competent Services to Support Stability and Independence

6. Measure Success and Reporting Outcomes
