Welcome to SHARE / WHEEL

 

November 27th Update:  For almost thirty years our SHARE community of homeless men and women has been working together to survive and solve homelessness.  We’re proud of our efforts, and the positive difference they’ve made in Seattle/King County. 

With a mixture of anticipation and trepidation we’re letting you know that this Sunday, December 1st, the CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes will feature a segment on the housing crisis and homelessness in Seattle.  The show starts at 7 PM.  Here's a clip:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/homeless-in-seattle-why-are-so-many-of-the-citys-citizens-living-on-the-streets-60-minutes-2019-11-26/?fbclid=IwAR3S0ho2OlFtj192GvououcnkiZrsGZ_kd-xFiXHzmbB_jAiom5MaunBSHY

This summer Anderson Cooper’s 60 Minutes crew spent a lot of time at Tent City3 talking with SHARE folks.  They seemed smart and caring.  We’re hoping the stories and wisdom that came out of our SHARE tents and shelters –from the misery and pain of sleeping outside alone to the possibility of community and empowerment in SHARE – get told Sunday.  We’re hoping that the basis of the crisis of homelessness--in increasing economic inequality--is recognized. 

We still need your support.  WHEEL Women in Black have stood for 99 homeless deaths that’ve occurred outside, in a public place, or by violence in King County already this year.  Without shelter, people die.  Our community, our gift of keeping people together and safe, and our speaking truth to power are more important now than ever.

Please tune in to 60 Minutes this Sunday, and please stay connected to SHARE.

Also, please consider making a contribution to help us fill an unanticipated year-end funding gap we’re facing because all of King County was denied a much-needed FEMA emergency shelter grant this year after Federal formulas deemed King County too wealthy, with too low an unemployment rate, to warrant it (!).

Thanks so much for your solidarity and support!
