Public Affairs - New Bethlehem Project

Every year, non-profits go out to the streets in King County and count how many people are homeless. In January of 2018, more than 12,000 individuals were found to be experiencing homelessness in Seattle/King County. Fifty-two percent (52%) of homeless people were unsheltered, living on the street, or in parks, tents, vehicles, or other places not meant for human habitation. Homelessness had increased 4% since 2017, and the unsheltered population had increased by 15%! There’s another report coming up in May and something tells me, things have not improved much... New Bethlehem Project works hard to meet the urgent, unmet need for shelter for families who are experiencing homelessness on the Eastside. To talk about the New Bethlehem Project, we recently invited Amber North, Program Manager, and Rebecca Nightingale Project Manager for Capital Campaign, which is a new project they have.
