Ever wanted to learn more about King County’s response to homelessness from the person in charge?

King County’s head of homelessness, Marc Dones, joined The Seattle Times’ Project Homeless on Tuesday, Sept. 28, for a live, hourlong Q&A event held over Zoom.

The event followed an in-depth profile on Dones, who is at the helm of King County’s Regional Homelessness Authority.

The new authority was created in 2019 to centralize King County’s response to the growing homelessness crisis. It combines the resources and power of municipalities and county government into one. After more than a year of searching for a leader, in March it hired Dones as its first CEO.

Dones answered audience questions live and talked more about the work of the Regional Homelessness Authority.
