SHARE is pleased to announce the REOPENING of our indoor shelter network on Monday, September 5, 2016. The five months of DIRECT ACTION on the Plaza of the King County Administration Building--with more than 200 participants nightly--has persuaded City and County officials to continue funding SHARE’s mission to SAVE LIVES by providing shelter to the homeless men and women of King County.
We are pleased to make the following statement:
I. We have successfully come to an agreement with King County and the City of Seattle.II. We have fashioned a new era of co-operation by forming a partnership with Catholic Community Services (CCS), The Church Council of Greater Seattle (CCGS), the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) and SHARE.
III. We will be dismantling our protest encampments on the Plaza and Goat Hill, the largest such protest movement in SHARE’s 26 year history.
We have achieved this socially progressive victory while maintaining the ideals of security, safety, and human dignity of the homeless community. We would like to thank the community at large for their generous moral, financial, and physical support during difficult time.
Monday morning we'll be moving out and cleaning up the King County Administration Building Plaza at 5th and James and also our Goat Hill Encampment at 5th and Jefferson. You're welcome to drop by and share the work and excitement on this "Fruits of our Labor Day!"
