Homelessness News
"The Civil Rights Movement of this decade is Mental Health Care quality and equality."
-- Updated March 12, 2006 --

      Welcome! 

    The mission of this page is to provide links to news and information about homelessness. People with mental illness and substance abuse problems comprise a large proportion of homeless populations throughout the United States.

    By most reports, homelessness increased by 18% in the year 2002 in King County. Should we care? What significance does homelessness have to most of us? Beyond the philosophical arguments of whether people choose to be homeless or not, the costs of homelessness impact our taxes and state budgets. Homeless people tend to show up in emergency rooms for expensive treatment and they tend to be arrested and rearrested for minor infractions and end up costing taxpayers while being housed in expensive prisons.

      Real Change News -- A Good Source for Activist Concerns!

    Check the Web site for Real Change News, a Seattle bi-weekly newspaper sold on the streets of Seattle by vendors who may be homeless or low-income. The Real Change mission is to "organize, educate, and build alliances to create solutions to homelessness and poverty." They exist to provide a voice to poor people in our community.

      Thank You for Stopping By!
