King County Executive Dow Constantine, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, and Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus recently announced the formation of One Table – a high-level work group with an aggressive timeline for developing community action steps to confront the root causes of homelessness.

The inaugural meeting of One Table took place on Monday, Jan. 22.

“To truly get the upper hand on homelessness, we must be more focused on preventing people from becoming homeless in the first place,” said Executive Constantine. “With One Table, we are convening regional leaders who can help find the answers and unite the community to take on the many root causes of this crisis.”

Other One Table members include city and county leaders in business, politics, nonprofits and some who have personally experienced homelessness.
