One of MIPC’s mission partners, Plymouth Housing, just send this information about the homeless Plymouth population in Seattle.
• The majority of residents become homeless due to a perfect storm of persona, medical and economic issues.
• In 2011 nearly 1,000 adults lived in 12 Plymouth owned and operated buildings in downtown Seattle.
• The majority of Plymouth residents struggle with one or more disabilities such as mental illness, chronic medical conditions, chemical dependency, HIV/AIDS, developmental disabilities, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
• It costs approximately $13,000 a year to provide a home to one Plymouth resident.
• There are 918 people on Plymouth’s waiting list.
