From The News Tribune:

Shkelqim Kelmendi believes that no apartment should sit vacant when there are people living without a home.

As the executive director of nonprofit Housing Connector, Kelmendi brings together property owners and case managers for people experiencing homelessness to identify where those units are and how they can be used to combat the region’s homelessness crisis.

For the past two years, Housing Connector has operated in King County, creating homes for nearly 2,000 people.

Now, Housing Connector is taking its strategy to Pierce County, the nonprofit announced Wednesday. The expansion was made possible with $378,000 in funding from Pierce County and $130,000 from the Tacoma Housing Authority.
