In July, King County announced the purchase of the Silver Cloud Inn in Redmond to provide permanent supportive housing for people experiencing chronic or long-term homelessness. It is part of the Health through Housing initiative, which is a regional strategy to house people experiencing homelessness and funded by a sales tax the King County Council passed last year.
King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci has scheduled a District 6 virtual town hall on Thursday, September 2, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm for community members to share their concerns and have their questions answered. King County’s Director of Community and Human Services Leo Flor, who is responsible for implementing the Health through Housing program, including the Redmond site, will be in attendance to describe the program and help answer questions.
“I have heard from constituents about this project, some in support, and others with concerns. Several people have expressed a desire to talk more about it,” said Balducci. “There also seems to be some misunderstandings circulating about what the goals of the Health through Housing initiative, who it will serve, how the Redmond Silver Cloud Inn was selected and how the program will work on the site.”
