2. Who are Olympia's most vulnerable citizens?

A:

People With Disabilities
As rents increase and institutional care declines, people who live with developmental disabilities, mental illness, and other disabilities often experience homelessness. The Home Fund will create opportunities for our neighbors with disabilities to live with dignity & independence in homes they can afford. Supportive services provided on site will assist them to achieve stability and security in their homes.

Struggling Families
Parents, particularly single parents, who live with disabilities struggle to pay rent & have enough money for other necessities. Homelessness among vulnerable families affects the health, wellbeing, and education of their children. The Home Fund will build homes that are affordable to families on fixed incomes.

Young People
Youth who have aged out of foster care, young LGBTQ people, and young people with disabilities face incredible danger when they experience homelessness. The Home Fund will give these young people a chance to succeed by offering homes they can afford and services to help them achieve independence.
