City Officials Return Home from Seattle in Continued Effort to Address Homelessness
SACRAMENTO -- A coalition of about 20 Sacramento city officials have returned home after a trip to Seattle to observe a number of tent cities there, as they continue to look for ways to deal with Sacramento's homeless population. The trip served as an opportunity to see how Seattle has transitioned a large portion of its homeless population into temporary housing. Sacramento is a city with more than 4,000 homeless people, 1,000 of whom sleep outside every night.
