Homelessness in Spokane has reached historic levels. The issue is as multifaceted as it is seemingly impossible to solve. What are the roles of mental health, addiction, incarceration, job loss, housing costs, mentorship, public policies, government spending and other challenges in this complex puzzle?

How do we create shared understanding and collaborative efforts? What can we accomplish to address this ever-growing need?
