‘Solving homelessness is not rocket science’: Nonprofit service groups react to rise in numbers
SEATTLE -- The results of King County's one-day count of homeless people, taken back in January, found an estimated 12,000 people were experiencing homelessness in Seattle and King County. About 6,300 of them were unsheltered -- living on the street or in parks or vehicles. “You can’t walk outside this community and not think that there are a lot of people experiencing homelessness,” says Lauren McGowan of United Way.
