What do you think of when you think of Seattle?

Maybe the Space Needle?
Maybe the Pike Place Market?

Or Puget Sound?

Or maybe if you’re a movie buff you think of Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle?
Well I’m off to Seattle for the next two days, but I’m part of a group from Dallas to look at what Seattle is doing to provide housing for the formerly homeless. So we’re going to look at what Plymouth Housing is doing, like this project scheduled to open next year:

Plymouth Housing has eleven buildings with 1,000 units available for housing people that were formerly homeless. All of these units are in downtown Seattle, which isn’t any bigger than Downtown Dallas. You can read more about the work of Plymouth Housing here:

When I get back, I hope I’ll have more to say about its work.

  1. Hey, hope you enjoy the trip up here--you picked the right time since we're getting a last gasp of summer. If you have the time you should go by New Horizons (street youth ministry, which is just up the street from the site at 3rd and Cedar. Two days is short, though, you may not have spare time.
