King County Planning Expanded Enhanced Shelter and Behavioral Health Services Hub in SoDo with New Lease
Executive Constantine shared his proposal for the expansion of critical shelter and behavioral health services in SoDo, including micro-modular shelters, a sobering center, and supports for RV residents. The services hub will be a partnership between King County, the City of Seattle, and the King County Regional Homelessness Authority.
King County Executive Dow Constantine announced today a new plan to expand 24/7 shelter and behavioral health services at a SoDo hub in partnership with the City of Seattle and the King County Regional Homelessness Authority (KCRHA). The hub is part of the next phase of a plan released last year by Executive Constantine to add 24/7 shelter with services to people experiencing homelessness in downtown Seattle, Sodo, and nearby neighborhoods. The funding for this planned expansion comes in part from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, County investments, and $5 million from the City of Seattle.
