This is the second in a series of events where we invite homeless service providers to talk about their experiences working both with and for those in our community that are living without permanent shelter.
Founder + Creative Director at Facing Homelessness
Principal at BLOCK Architects
Co-founder of the BLOCK Project
A Seattle native, Rex ran a successful residential architectural firm for 30 years. In 2010, after befriending several men experiencing homelessness along the Fremont canal, Rex started a Facebook page to raise awareness for those living unsheltered through the sharing of photos and personal stories. Today, that Facebook page has over 51,000 followers, becoming a thriving and inspirational non-profit, Facing Homelessness. Rex now combines both architecture and community outreach in starting a social justice architecture firm, BLOCK Architects, with his daughter Jenn LaFreniere.
