Real Solutions to the
Homelessness Crisis

King County Regional Homelessness Authority is here to create change now and for the future.

Using an Evidence-Based Approach

KCRHA is centering people with lived experience of homelessness in everything we do. We rely on data, proven practices, and principles of social justice and racial equity. We support dignity and self-determination in designing and implementing a homelessness response system that will help people thrive.

Accurate Data You Can Trust

Data is a critical tool for preventing and ending homelessness. Many variables affect homelessness and the situation is often changing. Up-to-date information is essential to understanding our system’s ability to meet the need and identifying effective strategies for addressing the crisis.
