We should be careful that what we do for good cause doesn't end up making the situation worse. Making accommodations for the homeless more accessible may not be a good long-term solution. It could attract more homeless from all over the country to come Seattle or the state in general. Tell all your friends, if they know someone in another state who is homeless or a heroin addict, give them a one-way bus ticket to Seattle where they can have access to a safe space to pitch a tent and public access to Narcan at official heroin injection sites and public places like libraries and the YMCA. Ultimately, what the homeless need (at least those who are interested in opportunities to improve their situation) is rehabilitation, skills training, and subsequent gainful employment.
