"Partnership for Zero" aims to reduce unsheltered homelessness
New "Partnership for Zero" collaboration aims to reduce unsheltered homelessness

Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell joins other government, philanthropic and nonprofit, and business leaders to unveil Partnership for Zero, a new collaboration to dramatically reduce unsheltered homelessness in Downtown Seattle.

Partnership for Zero, a new public-private collaboration, aims to create a united approach to dramatically reduce unsheltered homelessness, starting in Downtown Seattle and a set of regional communities to be named soon. Building on the efforts that led to the creation of the King County Regional Homelessness Authority (KCRHA), the City of Seattle, King County, and We Are In -- an advocacy coalition of philanthropies, businesses, service providers, advocates, and both housed and unhoused King County residents -- are coming together to launch this unique partnership in support of KCRHA's plan, beginning with more than $10 million of private contributions in the first year.

Speakers and attendees include:

Felicia Salcedo, We Are In

Marc Dones, King County Regional Homelessness Authority

Mayor Bruce Harrell, City of Seattle

Dr. LaMont Green, Lived Experience Coalition

Michelle Seitz, Russell Investments

Executive Dow Constantine, King County
