Those experiencing homelessness in Seattle have become increasingly vulnerable through the pandemic. People are being displaced due to economic conditions, the ongoing effects of early childhood trauma, addiction, and other challenging circumstances. The housed community is presented with this troubling reality with an increasing number of tents in parks and on street corners. At the same time, BCC’s long-time partners at The Commons, the “living room on Aurora” that provides a restorative community, trusted resources, and invaluable connection, is at risk of itself being displaced.
Join us in the journey of learning to love and walk alongside our unhoused neighbors well.
