Learn from and share with local leaders
The hello for good steering committee meets weekly to learn from and share with local leaders and experts from across the country about homelessness, mental health, and addiction to help guide our actions and decisions.
Spokane Unite, an initiative modeled after successful campaigns in Houston and Atlanta, is an effort to establish an independent authority tasked with making strategic, coordinated decisions and investments, to achieve the best outcomes. Recently regional elected leadership recently announced a 90-day due diligence period to evaluate options for a regional and collaborative model to improve our collective efforts to address homelessness and its impacts on our community.
