Parking Lot C, September 8 – December 17, 2022
As approved by Church Council, UCUCC will be hosting Tent City 3 (TC3) in Parking Lot C from September 8th through December 17th. TC3 provides a safe, secure, and caring community for people experiencing homelessness.
History: Our church has a long history of supporting tent communities as part of our Love & Justice outreach efforts. In 2010, the congregation voted to authorize the Church Council to approve hostings of up to 3 months within any twelve month period within certain parameters. Since then, we have hosted 6 encampments, with our last encampment ending in June 2021.
Parking: during the hosting, Lot C on 15th Ave NE will be closed for parking. On Sundays, parking in Lot A and Sortun Court will be prioritized for those with mobility issues. For those without mobility issues, please park in nearby lots. UW parking lots are your best best, including the Central Place Garage (Red Square) and Lots N5 and N1 (NE 45th and 17th NE, Memorial Way).
Volunteers: please consider signing up to serve as a parking ambassador on Sundays during the hosting. If interested, please contact Tim Croll (email@example.com)
Questions: please contact Robin Turner (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are grateful for the continued support of the congregation for hosting encampments and we look forward to the day when there is no longer a need for people to ask to live in tents on our parking lot.
