We are happy to share a new solution to the problems of homelessness with our neighbors in Santa Cruz. We've seen Sanctuary Camps like this work in many other cities and the benefits of such camps vastly improve the lives of the residents inside and outside of the camp.
We've self-funded the campaign to this point and now we refocus this as a community effort to help our homeless community to the benefit of all.
To date we've:
- printed thousands of flyers
- created a Video Presentation for our community (3,200 views)
- we've circulated an Endorsement Petition (nearly 1,000 signatures)
- we have handed out hundreds of Clean Camp Pledge Cards to individual homeless folks.
Now we need help moving the campaign into the next phase.
- We're working on our Official Proposal to the People of Santa Cruz including a Business Plan
- We're planning a Community Forum to raise awareness of our vision
- We're in the first stages of establishing our Pilot Camp of 50 people.
So far it has all been completely out of pocket.
Immediate needs include:
- a Smart Phone
- help contributing to our monthly "office desk space".
- financial help in producing the Community Forum.
(please contact us directly to see how you might help with that)
We now have a good free printing source for fliers so our weekly printing cost has been erased.
We're getting close to establishing our first Pilot Camp and we'll need your help to move it into reality.
Please help us with a generous donation.
Please watch and share our video presentation with everyone in your life.
