"We are a part of the movement for housing justice, centered on the voices and needs of local people who are houseless.
We go beyond advocacy to directly support the survival of those who are houseless in our community. By partnering with individuals and organizations we help encampments with access to garbage pick-up, survival supplies, basic sanitation, building relationships with neighbors, and conflict resolution."
