Dear Nickelsville, Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI), and Seattle Human Services Department Leaders,
I have immense admiration for the work that both LIHI and Nickelsville have done for years in serving our underserved homeless neighbors. Nickelsville, you have stood against corporate power in the city that wants to stop spending on human services. You have served the needs of our community members and have shown us that we can have permanent affordable housing.
