The City of Seattle has partnered with Chief Seattle Club to open the Kings Inn hotel-based shelter in Belltown. The shelter will serve unhoused American Indian and Alaskan Native people. Chief Seattle Club will operate the hotel, provide case management, housing navigation, and culturally appropriate services designed to support individuals on their path to permanent housing. The City of Seattle is using one-time federal funding to lease the entire 66-room hotel as a shelter for 12 months, which includes one month for ramp-up and one month for ramp-down.

Per the 2020 Point-In-Time Count, American Indian/Alaska Native peoples are disproportionately represented in King County homelessness, accounting for 27 percent of the unsheltered homeless community, yet only one percent of residents. 

Speakers include: 

Deputy Mayor Casey Sixkiller, City of Seattle

Derrick Belgarde, Chief Seattle Club
