Re: “Agency’s vision for Seattle’s recovery starts downtown” [Oct. 26, A1]:
I hope for all of us that King County Regional Homelessness Authority CEO Mark Dones is profitable. That stated, it might appear that not less than a few of this success will contain working with present companions which were working with this inhabitants and have an understanding of what assets can be found and what’s wanted.
One factor that’s clear is that businesses have issue recruiting and retaining staff who present direct service (which I’d argue is a tough job that doesn’t obtain consideration or accolades although they’re properly deserving of such). As an alternative of re-creating the wheel maybe present packages may be on the receiving finish of latest assets.
Additionally, as a taxpayer and fellow citizen involved about what I see because the rising public well being downside of homelessness, I’d very very like to see projected metrics of success and subsequent quarterly reviews.
