Murals help us see and remember the others around us as the dignified, proud people they were, and still are, if only on the inside. This mural targets the "Old Walls" in Lake City between the Homelss, the Hungry, or the Indigenous. and the rest of us.
This latest project is a collaboration with LIHI (Low Income Housing Institute), North Helpline, and SIHB (Seattle Indian Health Board). It is just one more bridge connecting the peoples of Lake City, our club's home community.
"Our two clubs have worked together for many, many years. I am most proud of what we are accomplishing for those in need in our community during the pandemic. Come share in the celebration of what our clubs are doing to improve the quality of life for children, families, seniors in North King County."

Rotarians Jean Withers and Chris Hansen explain why, and how, local Rotary Clubs are building tiny homes.
ARE TINY HOMES SAFE AND EFFECTIVE? In the past four years, the tiny home village movement has established a proven system to end homelessness.
Working with LIHI’s dedicated case managers, 52% of the tiny home village residents who exited moved into long term housing: 36% moved into permanent housing. Also last year, 16% of tiny home village residents moved into transitional housing (many with Section 8 subsidies). In contrast, only 4% of people who exited emergency shelters and 23% who exited enhanced shelters obtained permanent housing.
IS THERE A NEED FOR TINY HOMES? YES! Seattle City Council has approved funding for establishing the infrastructure for three additional tiny home villages (for a total of 105-150 homes) within the next six months. Seattle City Council has also passed an ordinance (without funding) to develop up to 40 more tiny home villages. That is between 1400-2000 new tiny homes!
