“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” 🎄✨
______________________________________________
Every year the ladies of @ebellclublagunabeach create special memories with our kids by coming over to have a Christmas Tree Decorating Party! These ladies really know how to get our kids into the holiday spirit, and everyone has so much fun decorating the tree together. This year, they also surprised us with craft supplies for all of the kids to make their own personalized ornaments and stockings!
_________________________________________________
This party and the cozy atmosphere that follows is very special for our kids who stay with us over the holidays, away from family and the comforts of home. Thank you Ebell Club Laguna Beach for another fantastic year of lifting our kids spirits and getting them excited for Christmas! 🤶🏻🎅🏻

"In a small Washington town with no youth shelters, one woman keeps kids off the streets.

There are no youth shelters in the county, yet one in 10 students in Shelton, the county seat, is homeless — a higher rate than Seattle schools and among the worst in the state. Most kids are doubled-up with another family or staying in hotels, but more than 100 kids are living outside, in cars, or on the street.

Funders and policymakers across the country are looking to Rinehardt’s Mason County Housing Options for Students in Transition (HOST) program for inspiration on ending youth homelessness.

HOST kids are doing well: Almost all of the nearly 200 students she has put in host homes graduated on time, and many of those who did not later returned to finish. Compare that with a 38 percent four-year graduation rate for homeless students at the Shelton School District’s alternative school, CHOICE, and the statewide graduation rate of 55 percent for homeless students."

"The Seattle City Council moved Wednesday to reduce a proposed expansion of the city’s team responsible for overseeing removal of homeless encampments, redirecting the money to wage increases for homeless service workers.

The 6-3 vote was a preliminary action, with the final budget set for adoption Monday. But the proposal, sponsored by Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda, sparked debate among council members and protests from business and neighborhood groups who want a more vigorous response to the city’s estimated 400 unsanctioned tent camps.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan had proposed expanding the Navigation Team, which includes outreach workers and police, by nine positions in her budgets for 2019 and 2020. City council staff said at least some of the positions already had been hired, using $500,000 allocated by King County over the summer to allow the team to expand to 30.

The city already has dramatically increased its actions in unauthorized tent camps. From February to December 2017, 142 encampments were removed, with residents given 72-hour notice, and 49 obstructions or hazards were removed with no notice given, according to a presentation at the Tuesday night advisory-committee meeting. Contrast that with January to October 2018, when 179 encampments and 205 obstructions or hazards were removed.

Outreach also has increased. In 2017, the Navigation team made more than 7,300 contacts with unsheltered homeless people; 1,179 people accepted some sort of service and 675 were referred to shelters. In 2018, the team has made more than 8,000 contacts, referring nearly 1,000 people to shelters."

"Seattle breaks ground on 102 new affordable housing units for homeless.

Seattle continues to do what it can to fight its homeless crisis, breaking ground on 102 new affordable housing units in the Little Saigon neighborhood.

The 102 units at 501 Rainier Avenue South will be set aside for those experiencing “long-term homelessness,” as part of an effort to have 2,500 city-funded affordable rental homes by 2021.

A housing case manager will be present for anyone living in the building, providing “services tailored to meet their unique needs,” according to a press release issued by the city.

As we address our region’s homelessness crisis, we must build more affordable housing, help our neighbors experiencing homelessness access the services they need, and help them move into safer places,” said Mayor Jenny Durkan in the release."

I am so grateful for being given the opportunity to volunteer at our local youth shelter.  I’m there to assist with the weekly yoga practice...which is different than you may think. It’s not always moves and flow...it’s more mindfulness and breathing.  Last night we colored in the girls class and did chocolate mediation in the boys class.  During each class, we shared a Sanskrit word to help them learn and grow. I am blessed to be given the opportunity to get to know these wonderful human beings. #nevertoooldtolearn #youthshelter #volunteering #givingtoothers #yogaclassforkids #sanskrit #lessonsforallofus #teamheartandsoul❤️🙏🏻 #momofdogs #coachlife #fitmomofdogs #yogagirl

With every group of kids that comes our way, our staff teaches the kids how far kindness can go, and the positive impact that kindness can have on others and themselves. A daily program requirement for our kids includes naming one (or more!) acts of kindness they did for someone else. Science shows that being kind can increase feelings of happiness, boost self-esteem, strengthen the immune system, and can even help those struggling with emotional trauma to better handle negative emotions. 
_________________________________________________
We do our best to show our youth the huge impact kindness has on the world around them. Help us celebrate by promoting good deeds and partaking in acts of kindness each and every day! Happy World Kindness Day! 🌎✌🏻

So happy to pass on a 1K cheque to Dion from @evasinitiatives, the proceeds from our Dinner with a Purpose. The money will be used to buy new blankets for their Satellite office in North York. So blessed to be able to give back to the community.

"Nearly five years ago, Seahawks running back Chris Carson's family lost their home in a fire. Now Carson is joining the fight against the homeless crisis in Seattle.

That’s why the second-year Seahawk arrived at an event space at Magnuson Park, on the lip of Lake Washington, a few minutes shy of 6 p.m. last Friday night. Carson came to support ROOTS — “Rising Out of the Shadows” — an emergency shelter for homeless youth ages 18 to 25. His goal was to harness whatever name recognition he’s garnered and redirect it toward ROOTS.

It was to use his unique platform to fulfill a promise to his mother.

I told her, ‘If I get this chance, I’m going to use this platform and try to help out as much as I can,’” Carson told the crowd. “My agent and my team got me in contact with ROOTS and I saw what they were doing here. It was amazing. I knew I wanted to get involved with it. I wanted to be a supporter of it.

I’m just blessed that I got to meet these people and help out as best I can."

40% of youth in the US identify as LGBTQ. Last year at Launch Pad, 44% of our guests identified as LGBTQ+. Reasons why our guests our homeless varies, but we can say we’ve seen the entire spectrum of rejection by families over the years, from young adults who were kicked out at 15 to a young cisgender man shunned by his family because of his love for a transgender woman. So, keeping our shelters supportive and affirming for our youth is our top priority. Interested in helping? Message us!

"In the last year, Northwest Youth Services (NWYS) provided nearly 1,000 minors and young adults experiencing homelessness with food, shelter and supplies. Since 1976, the Whatcom County-based nonprofit has been a doorway to safety and pathway to progress for thousands of at-risk, runaway and homeless youth.
A new apartment building in Bellingham, called “22 North,” is NWYS’s latest housing project. It’s slated to open in mid-October. Photo credit: Matt Benoit.

Through a series of quality programs, and partnerships with local organizations like Peoples Bank, NWYS continues their quest to end youth homelessness. Peoples Bank works with NWYS to provide sponsorship and financial resources, as well as internal leadership.

NWYS is making a major impact through “22 North,” a new multi-story apartment building providing supportive housing for homeless young adults. The building, located at 1022 North State Street, is slated to open in mid-October.

The building will feature 40 studio apartments split between NWYS and the OC. It will have many of the aforementioned support services on-site, helping these young adults on their journey to independence and well-being."

Days spent volunteering are food for the soul. 💫

YEAH (Youth Engagement Advocacy #housing) was my shop for the day... ✂️❤️ spent the afternoon giving free cuts to #homeless youth in Berkeley. Each experience is different and every experience is 💯 
Volunteered alongside @rbeardsleyhair @n_shearpassion @teresasculpts @cynthiaannwiley @haircutswithheart who give endlessly each time. I encourage every stylist, barber, human to make giving and volunteering a part of their regular routine. You never know who you will touch and make a positive lasting impression on forever. It amazes me every time, that the smallest thing like a haircut, can really empower a person. We all can’t save the world out here by ourselves, but we can spread kindness. And showing someone you care can start making that change. I did about 5 haircuts this event... each of the young people I had in my chair were so appreciative. One of my guys had his eyes closed the whole haircut, as I was taking all his hair off he let out a big sigh and said he could feel a weight being lifted off of him. And how he didn’t think this experience was gonna make him feel so good. 😌 One young man across the room got a cut from another stylist, came around after he was finished and gave each stylist a hug and thanked them for being there. (He said we should twice a month...😉) Some of these youth experiencing #homelessness are dealing with abuse, mental disabilities, rough times, ptsd, drug addiction, cost of living in the Bay Area, and so much more. Some of the conversations I heard involved being a young parent, dealing with sensory issues, being in jail, and political issues. When we’re here, we listen. 
We got to see some of the facility, where they house  30+people permanently with mats at night and lockers with about 2 ft. of space for all your belongings. Dinner was being prepared as we were packing up to go home. Thank you @haircutswithheart for another humbling event✂️❤️ And thanks for anyone who read to the end🙏

The Arnette House, a local Youth Shelter, needs to raise $30,000 for the installation of a swimming pool so they can teach kids how to swim and also provide a recreational activity at the facility. They have already cleared acreage for the construction of the pool. #osb #arnettehouse #pool #pools #youthshelter

"King County plans to turn a wing of the downtown Seattle jail into a shelter for homeless people, King County Executive Dow Constantine announced Thursday.

The county has one of the worst homeless crises in the nation, and for the third year since Constantine announced a state of emergency around homelessness, winter is approaching. “As I look around and I see the number of people who are continuing to be out on the streets,” Constantine said during a news conference Thursday outside the King County Correctional Facility. “And then I see a vacant building right here in the middle of downtown Seattle, it seems to me that we really have a moral obligation to open that up and provide an opportunity for people to get in out of the weather.” The west wing of the jail was used to house minimum-security inmates, but it was shut down to save money in 2012. Now it holds classrooms, staff offices and training spaces.

The jail wing will have 125 to 150 beds, will shelter mostly men and will cost around $2 million to renovate and turn into a shelter. Another $2 million will be each year spent on operating costs. King County hasn’t yet decided what service provider will manage the space.

While some in King County government and homeless advocacy feared putting homeless people in the King County Jail would send the wrong message, a spokesman for the executive’s office said that many providers in Seattle had some input on the decision."

"Should Seattle follow San Diego and Los Angeles and use large sprung tents to get people off the streets and on to a path to housing?

The city auditor thinks so, as do some on the city council. But in a recent budget briefing, Navigation Team chief Fred Podesta warned the city council against jumping in too quickly. “Seeing kind of our past uptake and acceptance of offers of shelter, I think we’d need to … carefully think about are people going to accept an enormous 150-person dormitory that’s in one big tent?” Podesta said. “We’d have to think about the design because we’ve seen different results with different kinds of offers, so before we get too bound up in the efficiency of a particular structure type, I think we really have to think about how our clients will react to it,” Podesta warned.

But Council member Teresa Mosqueda, who recently visited similar sites in Los Angeles, stressed the need for urgency. “I don’t mean to be disparaging, director,” Mosqueda countered. “We don’t have time to think about it anymore, especially when we have examples of other cities that have already looked at what’s going on well.” She said her visit to L.A. shows that you can create large tents that have barriers between each of the beds, that allow double beds for couples, that allow pets and that include showers and lockers and even green spaces for gardening, in addition to onsite case management – something just about everyone now agrees is vital to successfully addressing the homeless crisis."

"The HUB is finalizing rules that ban lying down and sprawling out on couches, sleeping for more than 30 minutes, using the restroom for cutting hair or bathing, and panhandling.

This fall, while the UW is trying to help the homeless people who are around it, it’s also struggling with a regional homelessness crisis that drifts onto the open campus.

The HUB is finalizing rules that ban lying down and sprawling out on couches, sleeping for more than 30 minutes, using the restroom for cutting hair or bathing, and panhandling, according to a draft of the policy obtained by The Seattle Times. The HUB has also secured funding for a part-time security officer, according to Justin Camputaro, the HUB director.

Some at UW are worried this could snarl up their efforts to help the University District’s street youth. Josephine Ensign, a nursing professor and well-known author on poverty and homelessness, heard about the HUB’s rule change while she was planning an upcoming event for homeless youth in the HUB. It is part of the Doorway Project, a state-funded partnership between UW and local social workers to create a community space in the U District for homeless youth.

Homeless youth already navigate their way around the U District — through places they feel more welcome, like Starbucks, or less welcome — and staff at ROOTS, a youth and young adult homeless shelter on The Ave, said this change would just mean one more place they can’t sleep."

"Last month, Pearl Jam played a pair of special hometown shows at Seattle's Safeco Field. Not only did the concerts mark the band's first hometown stand in five years, but the proceeds went to help fighting Seattle's homeless problem—the third worst in the nation. The rockers managed to collect over $11 million to benefit the city's homeless population.

On Thursday (September 27) the band took their cause one step further and by partnering with All Home and A Way Home Washington's "Anchor Community" initiative to help eliminate youth homelessness statewide by 2020." The band's guitarist Stone Gossard spoke at a press conference in Seattle on Thursday (September 27) to announce Pearl Jam's involvement in the efforts. “On behalf of The Home Shows, we’re excited to announce our support for these two coordinated efforts to end youth homelessness in Seattle and Washington State. This is the first major donation to come out of The Home Shows Fund, and we’re ready to continue our work with All Home and A Way Home Washington to help make sure every young person in our community has a home,” Gossard said. "Just as our community came together around The Home Shows, these initiatives will bring together nonprofits, government agencies, businesses, schools, families, and the community, to connect young people with the services they need to exit homelessness quickly, and find permanent and safe housing."

We tend to focus on the youth and families who come to us for help but, just the other day, we received a touching reminder from someone who didn’t make it to Casa Youth Shelter. A gentleman approached CYS Outreach Director Pam Sepulveda in the courtyard of our shelter. He was in his mid 60s and looked inquisitive. “Does this place take in homeless teens?” he asked. “Yes,” replied Pam. “Do you know a youth who needs help?” He proceeded to tell Pam that he had been homeless from the time he was 6 years old. He committed his first armed robbery at the age of 15. “I needed you,” the man said. “I just didn’t know it at the time. I love what you are doing here and I just wanted to let you know.” He introduced himself just by his first name and then handed Pam $20. She offered to give him a receipt, a thank you note, even a tour of the shelter. “No thanks,” he said. “I just want to be able to help you help these kids.” Then he walked away. To all of the troubled youth who grew up without support or intervention, we hope you are thriving as adults. And to all the youth out there who might need our services, we are here for you all day every day. #shelter #youth #youthshelter #homeless #homelessness #CasaYouthShelter #givingback #LosAlamitos #Rossmoor #SealBeach #LongBeach #Cypress #Cerritos #community#anaheim

Seattle's Eviction Epidemic. "Sarah Stewart has lived in Seattle for more than two and a half decades. She recently became homeless. Stewart has a degenerative illness and deals with chronic pain and fatigue that limit her ability to work. Last year, she was struggling to stay on top of her rent payments, which ultimately led to her eviction. "In the end the landlord had all the power and not only were they able to evict me, but they also burdened me with more than $2,000 in late fees, attorney fees, and other non-rent fees,” Stewart said at a press conference at Seattle City Hall today. “Given my current situation, there is no way I will ever be able to pay that back." Stewart still works when she can and now sleeps in her car, on friends’ couches and floors, or wherever else she can find a place.

you might imagine that something as serious as being evicted from one’s home would come after months of rent went unpaid, serious damage was inflicted to the apartment or something equally grave. In Seattle, however, owing the landlord just $10 is enough to wind up in eviction court – as was the case for one tenant in 2017. Another 20 tenants last year were taken to court over $100 of back rent owed."

"What would it cost to help each homeless person? It depends on where they’re staying. Emergency shelter: $14,207. Transitional housing: $12,021. Rapid rehousing: $7,351.

Most people who were living outside get inside through emergency shelter; about two-thirds of the entries in the homeless information database i n King County were for shelter, according to the Commerce data. But King County has been emphasizing rapid rehousing and moving away from transitional housing.So there is no easy way of getting to a bottom-line number to get people housed.

It’s important to note that people’s need for services varies widely. Some people need far more help to become healthy and housed. And it is possible — even likely — unsheltered people struggling with substance use or mental illness are already getting some type of help.

There about 30,000 people a year who request an array of homeless services in King County. Not all of them are unsheltered or need mental-health or substance-abuse treatment.

Even if local government spent thousands to get each person inside, there are not enough affordable housing units for those people to go into."

"Chciałbym się jeszcze powłóczyć z Tobą
Póki żyjemy i mam Cię obok
Poznać wszystkie diabły, anioły
Elfy, strzygi i upiory
Błąkać się w obrazach świętych
Spędzić dwie noce u wiedźm przeklętych
Spotkać tego, co się boją
Boga ze zrudziałą brodą

Siedzę na ławce, patrzę na słońce
Chyba już dzisiaj nigdzie nie zdążę
Chyba już nigdy nie będzie lepiej
Nie będzie dobrze, więc się nie spieszę"
