Mayor Stephanson on Low-Barrier Housing

The City of Everett is moving forward with a partnership with Catholic Housing Services to develop a low-barrier housing facility to serve chronically homeless Everett residents. Mayor Ray Stephanson has written a piece for the Everett Herald that does an excellent job of summarizing the need for low barrier housing while addressing common community concerns with this specific project, along with the plans that paved its way.┬áIn his own words, “the people on our streets are Everett residents, and members of our community. For their sake, and for the sake of our entire city, we must take action.”
