Health Through Housing

If you are a King County Resident, we need your help!  As a resident, your voice is critical. You can help urge the King County Council and the Regional Policy Committee to move Health through Housing (HtH) ahead by swiftly passing the HtH Implementation Plan. 


King County and local jurisdictions have partnered to implement Health through Housing to create 1,600 units of emergency housing and permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness. People who move into these 1,600 homes will have access to on-site case management and health and behavioral health services.
