Inclusive Communities

NWDA board member Polly Trout recently wrote about her Patacara Community Services’ current focus on offering supportive services to unhoused neighbors:

“Camp Second Chance is growing and thriving! We now have 55 residents, and our first tiny house is up! We have electricity and a potable water cistern. A grey-water catchment tank and sinks go in this week. We are being visited by the shower truck, the medical van, and the dental van.
We’ve made huge progress, but more residents also means more work! We need your help to provide compassionate and supportive services to all our wonderful new residents.

Here are some opportunities for you to get involved: donate a meal; become a volunteer housing advocate; help us build micro-homes for our residents; help us with your donation.”
