City launches a new community education and awareness campaign focused on homelessness

Redmond, WA – In response to recommendations from the Mayor’s Task Force on Homelessness, the City of Redmond is launching a community education and awareness campaign, including a new website focused on homelessness. The website addresses the causes of homelessness, current efforts underway  and encourages everyone who lives or works in Redmond to be part of the solution.
“The City is ‘all in’ because we’re about building community for everyone  including those who are most in need,” said Mayor John Marchione. “Thanks to the Redmond Community Homelessness Task Force for providing the foundation for this effort.”
There are many ways to be involved, including educating yourself and your friends, finding out how and where to volunteer your time and talents, and advocating for affordable housing or other key policies. Specific ideas are listed for landlords, employers, parents, and community groups.
The campaign is tied to the countywide All Home initiative and leverages the partnership that the City of Redmond has with King County. All Home Redmond has many ideas and opportunities for how residents can participate in this initiative, and they will be rolled out over the next several months.
