Mission: The Seattle – King County Coalition for the Homeless is a coalition of organizations and individuals working together to provide adequate and appropriate emergency responses, address the causes and break the cycle of homelessness.
The Seattle – King County Coalition for the Homeless was formed in 1979. We have grown from five shelters to over seventy nonprofit and governmental agencies, as well as private individuals, which seek to advocate and educate on vital issues and public policies related to homelessness and to sustain and advocate for homeless services.
