Seattle Growth Podcast 5.2: Homeless in Seattle (part 2)

An amplifying homelessness crisis is a serious negative side effect of Seattle’s dramatic growth.

Episode 2 of the Seattle Growth Podcast, season 5, continues its introduction to this growing challenge across the city’s neighborhoods and offers two front-line perspectives on the crisis.

Tyrus Gilbertson describes his experience of being homeless with his son and daughter before being given a new lease on life by Mary’s Place family shelter. Gilbertson also shares what has kept him going as he works to provide for his family.

Rick Hooper, co-president of the Seattle Uptown Alliance, shares what his organization is doing to build pathways out of homelessness and offers his perspective on challenges and opportunities that individuals can face as they work to strengthen their community.
