"The idea that people who are homeless come to Olympia because of our compassionate approach is a myth. Homeless census data routinely reveals that most of the people experiencing homelessness in our community were last housed in Thurston County." - There's a serious disconnect with this statement and literally every story in the series about homelessness on this site. Every story so far about homeless individuals and their situation that this paper has produced mentions that they came from somewhere else. It's difficult to trust the "data" when real-life stories of real-life people contradict that data at every turn.
