HOMELESS IN SEATTLE:
The US Department of Urban Housing & Development says the number of homeless veterans increased in 14 states in 2016/2017 with the largest increase being across California, Texas and our home state right here, Washington. Recent Seattle statistics from early 2018 say veterans make up 11% of those affected by houselessness which puts us around 1,300 vets without a home on any given night. Later in the year there was a significant push that decreased this number by 30% so there are now 900 without a home on any given night. The city opened multiple emergency cold weather shelters and extended hours at other locations - here are some links to use, save or share:
