Greetings Good People! Thank you to the 750+ of you who signed the petition to stop the sweeps against our unhoused community members and to all those who stand in solidarity making it your business to treat every member of our society with dignity and compassion. A practice of collective care is how we will create a world worthy of passing on to our future generations.
As we continue to show up in support for those living in our community unable to acquire or afford adequate housing we call on the community for donations of any size to help with necessary life sustaining supplies and give us a head start in helping us move those ready to go indoors off the street and on to next steps.
Our first priority is to keep people fed, hydrated and covered from the harsh elements, a dignified place to go to the bathroom, trash removal service on site, hygiene/first aid/harm reduction supplies, transportation (bus passes, bikes, rides, travel back to family out of state), laundry, assistance with ID/SS, etc. We are well practiced and resourced with most of these so the funds needed are just around $2500. The rest of the funds help us do the more long term sustainable work of getting folks on their way to seizing job/housing opportunities. These donations will go towards application fees, deposits, utilities, pet vaccines/deposits, tow + citation fines/fees, registration fees, work uniforms/shoes, etc.
As you can see there is much work to be done! We are a dedicated collective of community members calling you in now to help us meet people where they are at with dignity, respect and action! It is time for this community to give people a chance by providing exit strategies and the only thing that can truly end homelessness is housing!
Please give what you can. No amount is too little or too large and every drop is a step towards our liberation. Share with those in your network and let's make this a true community effort!
Power to the people!
