Jefferson County seeks interested individuals and organization representatives who share a passion for helping to advance homeless housing and affordable housing in Jefferson County, to serve on a local Task Force on homeless housing and affordable housing, that is being convened on behalf of Jefferson County and the City of Port Townsend.

We seek a diversity of interests for the Task Force to join elected representatives from the City and the County, including at least one homeless or formerly homeless person, and representatives of other interests, such as a housing authority, nonprofit organizations with experience in low-income housing, human services providers, substance abuse and mental health care providers, civic and faith organizations, schools, law enforcement and criminal justice personnel, emergency health care providers, business, affordable housing interests, real estate and housing developers, and community members.

Among other contributions, the Task Force will be recommending an update to Jefferson County’s Homeless Housing Plan this year by October 1.
