A cafe where no one is homeless: one solution to youth on Seattle streets | The Seattle Times
Only 52 percent of emergency shelter beds for youth and young adults were occupied last year, according to data from All Home, the coordinating agency for homeless services in King County. In contrast, 89 percent of shelter beds for singles are full on any given night.
