Homelessness in Redmond
Many of the homeless in Redmond are invisible and the statistics are startling:
According to a city web page:
1. 357 homeless kids in the Lake Washington School District are homeless.
2. There's a 39% increase in homelessness for every $100 increase in rent.
3. Homeless families wait 6 months on average for housing in King County.
I'm reposting this March article to share and understand Cloverleaf's invisible family struggles associated with our rapid rent increases:
