Pearl Jam ‘s Seattle Shows for Homelessness Cause Local Businesses to Call for Unity

Pearl Jam The Home Shows for HomelessnessPearl Jam ‘s amazing Home Shows concerts at Safeco Field this week have had a great effect already:  causing more than 50 businesses to release a letter committing to a shared strategy toward fighting homelessness in the region. It is hoped that this will be the beginning of a viable plan and solution that can be modeled all over the United States and beyond.
Along with the letter, Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard released this statement:
“There is simply no way to address homelessness in our region without the work of all of us. This is not an issue that government, nonprofits, philanthropy or individuals alone can solve. We need everyone — and that includes the business community. Businesses have innovative ideas, resources and employees eager to be engaged. We’ve been thrilled by the role Seattle’s business community has played in the Home Shows. We’re looking forward to continuing the collaboration as we work toward a shared strategy to fighting homelessness.”
