To meet the community needs, our city has taken a more active approach to addressing homelessness. In 2021 we started a Homeless Outreach Program, to help connect residents to services they need to begin transitioning out of homelessness. To help inform the local needs within the larger regional context, and to help guide our future work, we launched a Homeless Outreach Dashboard that tracks our progress.
Our work in Human Services is centered around the vision of Issaquah as a welcoming, inclusive, equitable and just community, with a broad range of social services, where every person is respected, and where meeting basic human needs is a shared responsibility.
