IN THE NEWS

Seattle Times
The Housing Resource Center is modeled after Atlanta's Open Doors program, which has shown success persuading landlords to rent to risky tenants, but the high cost of renting in the Puget Sound region could present hurdles. Operated by the YWCA of Seattle, King and Snohomish County, the Landlord Liaison Project connected more than 3,000 people with apartments over the last decade, receiving national recognition.
News of Mill Creek
Following their “Thanks for Giving!” program and luncheon in November, the Mill Creek Women’s Club tallied up the donations received from their members and donors and were able to provide all items on the “wish lists” from the charities they support, including YWCA's Pathways for Women Program.
Crosscut
As city officials scrape the budget for ways to increase the supply of low-cost apartments, the affordable housing that already exists is growing older and much of it is in need of repairs. Thanks to the expanded housing levy, the city has recently increased its investments into rehabbing buildings, but striking a balance between building new housing and maintaining what’s there is a precarious balance.
KUOW
KUOW reporter, Anna Boiko-Weyrauch, asked a priest, a rabbi, and a homelessness advocate on giving money to people who are panhandling, as well as other options for supporting folks experiencing homelessness.
