“Home: Lost and Found” storytelling workshops

The Moth, a popular public radio show that also puts on stage events and open-mic StorySLAMs in Seattle, is hosting free storytelling workshops to develop the storytelling skills of family homelessness providers and advocacy organizations in the Puget Sound Region. “We’re looking for people who have a personal story related to homelessness, who want to learn how to craft it into a compelling 5-minute story that can be told in front of a live audience.” Workshops will be held in February and March.

Communities Count tracks student homelessness in King County school districts. Collectively, close to 6,200 students were homeless in 2012-13. The overall rate of homelessness (1 in 44 students) masked large differences across districts — from Tukwila (1 in 10 students) to Mercer Island (2 in 1,000).
