Homelessness: Why Are We Not Having Success?

The homelessness situation is dire in Puget Sound, made more dramatic by a largely inefficient and ineffective policy response by state and local governments. These subject matter experts will talk through the public policy options before our communities and how we might get smarter about the challenges before us.

Hon. Nicole Macri: Vice Chair, House Community Development, Housing & Tribal Affairs Committee

Hon. Mark Miloscia: Ranking Minority Member, Senate State Government Committee

George Scarola: Director of Homelessness, City of Seattle

Jonathan Martin: Assistant Metro Editor, The Seattle Times
