Local media spotlight homelessness with #SeaHomeless project
The day-long conversation involves several local media outlets
For the second year in a row, Seattle media outlets are banding together to tell the stories of those who are often seen but rarely heard through the #SeaHomeless project.
As Seattle grows at a breakneck pace but continues to struggle housing some of its most vulnerable citizens, today is dedicated to the more than 11,000 people in King County grappling with finding safe, permanent and affordable housing.
The project is spearheaded by Crosscut, where you can find a list of all stories in the project. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter through the #SeaHomeless hashtag. You can see a full list of participating organizations and learn more about the project here.
SeattlePI.com’s contribution this year, written by city affairs reporter Daniel DeMay with photographs by Genna Martin, explores the experience of an entire family experiencing homelessness, as well as the unique challenges faced by children who grow up in poverty. You can read it here.
