Octopus Tank - ideas to solve homelessness

About this Event

Why an Octopus Tank?

We are not Sharks (tough, self-made, billionaires), we are a community with many arms and the goal of Shelter for All. Because we know we don’t have all the answers, we’re inviting you to help us gather fresh ideas that inspire action. This is a chance to join others in creating, promoting, and implementing innovations that can make a difference for unsheltered people in Pierce County.

Why Focus on Shelter for All?

The ink had barely dried on the constitution before homelessness became a national problem. We’ve been trying to “solve” homelessness ever since. We are grateful for the many creative minds that continue to focus on the BIG picture, but people often disagree about solutions. Increasingly, political divisiveness impedes progress and lack of shelter has reached epidemic proportions in the richest country in the world.

Meanwhile, smaller scale ideas often benefit from non-partisan support. These ideas are sometimes hyper-local and can typically be quickly deployed to make a difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. Bring your ideas (of any size) to the Octopus Tank or just bring an open mind to listen to the ideas of others.
