Forum on Homelessness Coming to MLT Library Feb. 28

The number of south Snohomish County residens with no permanent home, or even temporary shelter, has risen sharply. The cuases and prevention of the problem will be discussed at "Homelessness Here," a Sno-Isle Libraries forum scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 28 in Mountlake Terrace.

The 90-minute event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W. You are invited you to attend, and bring questions for a panel of local experts.

Panelists will be Kristen Cane, director of development and policy, Housing Authority of Snohomish County; Elysa Hovard, director of outreach, Cocoon House; Mark Waldin, program manager of South Snohomish County Emergency Cold Weather Shelter.

The moderator will be Kathy Coffey, executive director of Leadership Snohomish County and member, Lynnwood Human Services Commission. 

The event is the last of four “Homelessness Here” forums sponsored by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation this winter. Learn more at

Accommodations for people with disabilities are available on request. Please contact Kristin Piepho at Mountlake Terrace Library in advance of the forum.
