WINTER SHELTER: Seattle Center’s Exhibition Hall

Homeless man dies of exposure at Seattle light-rail station

Officials and homeless-service providers have been working to try to ensure the survival of thousands of people living unsheltered in King County with a snowstorm expected to hit the region. That’s meant opening shelters and paying for hotel rooms for those who need help.

Seattle planned to keep its emergency overnight shelter at Seattle Center’s Exhibition Hall open through at least Sunday night.

More than 30 major companies to host youth opportunity job fair in Seattle

youth jobs

On May 5, more than 30 major companies will host a hiring fair for youth at CenturyLink Field Event Center. The job fair is part of the 100,000 Opportunities Initiative, a coalition of top U.S. companies that is expanding its national youth hiring movement to Seattle. Together, they will interview hundreds of 16-24 year olds from King County who are disconnected from employment and education in an effort to connect them with meaningful job opportunities and a pathway to success.

Interested candidates are invited to register for free and pre-schedule their interviews for the May 5 event at http://www.100kOpportunities.org/Seattle.

City leaders gather for Town Hall meeting on violence


SEATTLE — City leaders came together Monday night for a Town Hall meeting aimed at making Seattle a safer place.

With 21 homicides in the past six months, Seattle residents are fed up and demanding answers. Many people in attendance at Monday’s meeting say they’ve heard a lot of talk from city leaders, but not enough focus on solutions for making the city safer.

Members of the Seattle Peace Chorus gathered outside of Town Hall at the memorial for Gloria Leonidas, who was gunned down just a few weeks ago by Café Racer shooter Ian Stawicki.

“What do you do? What does one person really do?” said Bob Shupe of the Seattle Peace Chorus.

Inside Town Hall, a panel of city leaders focused on issues ranging from gun control to the effectiveness of school systems and trust in the police force.
