New initiative aims to end youth homelessness in Pierce County. Best of all? It could work.
By 2022, A Way Home Washington — a 2-year-old nonprofit that describes itself as a “public-private partnership” — wants to end youth homelessness in four counties across the state, at least as much as that’s possible.
One of the counties A Way Home Washington is working with is Pierce — which submitted a proposal earlier this year and was selected to participate. Spokane, Yakima and Walla Walla were also selected as “anchor communities.
Pierce County’s inclusion makes the progress well worth tracking.
