We Are In (WAI) is a strategic initiative formed by a coalition of civic leaders representing housing and homelessness advocacy organizations, people with lived experience of homelessness, and philanthropic and business organizations. The focus of WAI is to bring together diverse external stakeholders to closely partner with government on advancing solutions to homelessness in King County that are racially equitable, community-driven and data-informed. Our goal is to reduce and ultimately end:

the number of people experiencing homelessness in Seattle and King County

racial disproportionality in who is impacted by homelessness; and

fragmentation in our community's response to homelessness


Black, Indigenous, and people of color disproportionately experience homelessness due to historical and systemic racism. We cannot address homelessness without addressing racism at its roots and the trauma it continues to perpetuate. We set universal goals to end homelessness and pursue targeted solutions to achieve these goals. Our racial equity work does not stop there. We are committed to building an internal culture that challenges racism within our organization.

Individuals identifying as Black, Indigenous, people of color, having lived experience with homelessness, and/or LGBTQ are strongly encouraged to apply. Further, in our effort to conduct an inclusive search for qualified candidates, this position does not require an advanced degree. Educational attainment will be considered along with other experience.
