Regional leaders announce ‘One Table’ – a community approach to homelessness and affordability 

King County Executive Dow Constantine, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, and Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus today announced the formation of One Table, a comprehensive effort made up of business, service providers, healthcare, faith community, philanthropy, labor, academia, community members and people who have experienced homelessness. 

The group will assess the region’s current response to homelessness, including root causes such as escalating home prices, inequality and the need to expand mental health and addiction services. It will also work to scale up community-based and government programs that are successful. 

“We all know homelessness is a regional challenge that heeds no boundaries,” said Executive Constantine.
