Real Change launches Second Edition of the Emerald City Resource Guide

Real Change is proud to announce the Second Edition of the Emerald City Resource Guide. This portable guide to services available in the greater Seattle area connects people without reliable access to technology to the services they need. 50,000 copies of the new edition of this vital guidebook will be distributed starting November 13th.

More than 200 agencies across the city will pick up copies for distribution. Additionally, a peer network of Real Change vendors will help get this guidebook into the hands of those who need it most. Many people experiencing homelessness in Seattle learn about resources through word of mouth.

The guidebook lists over 300 different resources, with the information people need to overcome barriers to finding help. Services like shelters, meal programs, and legal services are detailed in the guide, as are sections for culturally specific services. LGBTQIA people and people of color can experience additional barriers to services, and the guide highlights resources that address inequities.

Tim Harris, Founding Director of Real Change, is inspired by the strong reception of the Emerald City Resource Guide and the outpouring of community support that has made regular updates possible. 'I am happy to see that this guidebook is being used in so many ways. I've talked to social workers who use it as a quick reference, people who use it to find resources for themselves, and housed Seattleites who have used the guide to start a conversation in their neighborhood.'

'The Emerald City Resource Guide gets vital information into the hands of our neighbors that need it most,' said Jason Johnson, Interim Director of the Seattle Human Services Department (HSD). 'The organizations listed provide life-saving shelter, hygiene and food services for people experiencing homelessness. HSD is grateful for Real Change's leadership in gathering and distributing this information and proud to act as the primary sponsor for the second edition.'

This guidebook was made possible by the generous support of the City of Seattle Human Services Department, 211, YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish, Swedish Medical Center, Coordinated Care, Recovery Café, Nova Fisheries, Community Health Plan of Washington, West Seattle Food Bank, Seattle King County Clinic, Byrd Barr Place, Pioneer Human Services, Solid Ground, Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC), Jewish Family Services, Neighbor Care, and Evergreen Treatment Services.

The first edition of the Emerald City Resource Guide was published and distributed in March of 2018. 45,000 copies went to over 170 different service agencies across the city, including bus drivers, emergency first responders, Navigation Team members, and shelters. The guidebook will be published every 6 months to keep listings accurate and up-to-date.
