Downtown is great, but like every big-city, things come up that need attention. So, the Downtown special improvement districts find common cents solutions. On November 14, they’ve invited an expert in to discuss issues surrounding homelessness. You’re invited. So, mark your calendars and bring a few friends. It’ll take a village to make a dent on this serious issue. Seriously, it’ll take our entire city.
The cost of people living on the street squeezes the entire community, and resources never reach far enough. Professionals working in hospitals, emergency shelters, law enforcement and social services know all too well. But cost-effective solutions exist.
Capital Crossroads and Discovery Special Improvement Districts present Common Cents Solutions. Columbus College of Art and Design hosts the event at the Canzani Center. Show up at 4 p.m. for some networking and great nosh. The programming begins at 4:30 p.m. Before the keynote speaker steps on stage, the SIDs will recognize some Downtown Champions who help make the city great.
Yes, it’s a complicated issue. But Daniel Malone, executive director of Seattle’s Downtown Emergency Service Center, will provide some Common Cents Solutions and open dialogue. Daniel will talk about how integrated services—things like housing, healthcare, employment—all in one place create change. For those money crunchers? This type of approach also saves money.
