On Sunday, Project Homeless published an investigation into how a sober Seattle-based housing company, Damascus Homes, received tens of thousands of dollars in government funding while red flags appeared from police, social service agencies and tenants.
Houses in Damascus have provided sober housing for homeless people, but no government body is responsible for overseeing the type of housing. After four years of doing business, some tenants in Damascus have once again been abandoned or left homeless.
Using the story as a starting point, the author of the investigation, Sydney Brownstone, will come with Edmund Witter, Senior Advocate for the King County Bar Association’s Housing Justice Project, to take a deeper look at people’s housing issues. who would otherwise be homeless would talk about the rights of tenants.
The online discussion will start on Thursday afternoon. Participation is free, և registration is open at st.news/housingtalk.
