Hopelink CEO Lauren Thomas cut the ribbon during the grand reopening of Hopelink’s Kenmore Place shelter on Aug. 18.

The facility has served as the only homeless family shelter in north King County for nearly 30 years, and was recently renovated and enlarged from nine units to 11. During the next 60 years, the shelter is expected to help 1,000 local families get back on their feet.

Thomas was joined by Kenmore Mayor David Baker, King County Department of Community and Human Services Director Adrienne Quinn, King County Councilwoman Kathy Lambert and King County Housing Authority Executive Director Stephen Norman.
