Intersections of Homelessness: Race, Ethnicity, and Household Composition

Aligning with a spotlight on racial equity happening across the country, the Snohomish County Human Services Department's (HSD) Office of Community & Homeless Services (OCHS) has been examining the Everett/Snohomish County Continuum of Care (CoC) to look for areas where racial disparities may exist. Often, evaluations of homeless systems focus on unsheltered versus sheltered, or families versus individuals, typically with subgroupings for special populations like youth, veterans, or those who are considered to be chronically homeless. Demographics like age, gender, race, and ethnicity are included, but tend to be characteristics, rather than a central focus. This report takes an intentional look at race and ethnicity in the Snohomish County Homelessness System, with the purpose of uncovering areas that may require more rigorous analysis.

The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) is a HUD report to the United States Congress that provides estimates of homelessness, including information about the demographic characteristics of homeless persons, service use patterns, and the capacity to house homeless persons. The report is based primarily on Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) data about persons who experience homelessness during a 12-month period. Reports shown here are directly extracted from the HUD Homeless Data Exchange (HDX). Additional information regarding the AHAR may be found here: CoC Homeless Populations and Subpopulations Reports
