Did you know that the City of Tacoma is basing their response to the current homeless crisis on numbers projected from a flawed count? The Point-In-Time count for 2019 estimates only 1,486 unhoused citizens in Tacoma when more accurate methods say we have 3,600–a difference of over 2800 people!
While we are happy that the City recognizes this as an emergency situation that requires action, the solutions proposed for this week’s Council meeting will not be enough to protect even one fourth of our most vulnerable population as winter moves in.
Join us and others this Tuesday, November 19 at 5pm to tell City Council we need to do more!
