As we gear up for our next week’s CommonWealth kickoff, we’re learning a lot about this round’s issue focus–housing and homelessness. Did you know…
- On any given night, 8,800+ people are without reliable housing in King County–700+ of them are young adults from the age of 12-24. 2,700+ people are sleeping outdoors–and half of those in emergency shelters and transitional housing are families.
- Rent increases in Seattle are among the highest in the country–and to comfortably afford the average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Washington, a household needs to make double the minimum wage.
Want to do something about it, but feeling totally overwhelmed? Well, you don’t have to. When you join CommonWealth, you not only get the opportunity to learn more about some of the biggest issues affecting our community–but you get to join a team as committed as you are to supporting the organizations tackling them. Because when you put your minds and your money together, big things happen.
CommonWealth kicks off Tuesday 11/14–are you signed up?
