United Way Housing Stability Associate
 
 
 
Homelessness and housing instability remains a crisis in our region. On any given night, more than 11,199 people will experience homelessness in King County. 5,228 people are unsheltered – staying in vehicles, tents, and on our streets, while approximately 5,971 stay in emergency shelter. The rising cost of living and rent is also contributing to instability, nearly 50% of evictions are because of unpaid rent. United Way of King County believes that this is unacceptable and is committed to reducing the number of unsheltered people and evictions due to unpaid rent in our community. What started as a health crisis, has quickly had reverberating economic shocks in our community, and within the first months of the COVID-19 response, thousands of community members have faced having to choose between paying rent or for other basic needs. Our vision is to live in a community where everyone has a safe and stable home. We believe our community needs to address the crisis with a strong and efficient crisis response system and an adequate number of stable housing options that help people exit homelessness. We also need to reduce the number of people becoming homeless in the first place.
