Councilmember Juarez’s Statement on $30M from Allen Foundation

Councilmember Debora Juarez (District 5, North Seattle) issued the following statement today after the Allen Foundation announced $30M to support homeless families:

“It’s not every day our city receives word of a multi-million-dollar partnership that will help to alleviate a decade-old crisis.  But today, due to the Allen Foundation’s tremendous generosity, families and young children will secure the housing they need to stabilize and thrive.

“My sincere hope is that these funds will serve families from North Seattle, as well as the rest of our great city.

“Mr. Allen is a hometown hero to many, and today we are all grateful for his civic pride and generosity. I’m impressed, but not surprised, by his gesture of compassion.”
