Member Highlight: All Home
HDC appreciates all the passion, hard work, and dedication our members devote to the affordable housing movement. No single organization could make this impact and secure this progress alone. The collaboration and connection among members is the human energy that works to ensure all people have a safe, healthy, and affordable home. We want to show our appreciation and learn more about our affordable housing community through these member highlights as each member is crucial to achieving the larger vision of this movement. This week our featured member is All Home. Thank you for all the work that you do!
- What excites your team about the work you are doing?
We are excited about transforming the homeless response system to lead with racial equity and to having people with lived experience of homelessness participate comprehensively in the design, implementation and evaluation of the system. We believe this work is critical to addressing racial disparities and making homelessness rare, brief and one-time in King County.
- What is a favorite office anecdote?
One day, almost all members of the team showed up wearing some version of a black and white striped top: sweaters, t-shirts and even a jacket. Great minds think (and dress) alike!
- What upcoming projects, partnerships, and news are you looking forward to?
We are looking forward to our campaign and work to end youth homelessness in King County by 2020! We are proud to have many partners, including Pearl Jam and A Way Home Washington (AWHWA) to create a truly comprehensive system that meets the needs of all young people in King County and eventually across Washington state.
- What have you been most proud of during your time as an HDC member?
We are incredibly proud of the work we have done across the system to become more data-driven. We now have public-facing dashboards that are updated quarterly and available on the All Home website to tell us how our system is performing and to help drive decisions.
