CAMP SECOND CHANCE: Management changes at Seattle-sanctioned camp

For those tracking homelessness-related issues on Myers Way: On our partner site West Seattle Blog, we’re reporting on management changes at city-sanctioned Camp Second Chance. Its official fiscal sponsor and managing organization, Patacara Community Services, is withdrawing, and the city is talking with the Low-Income Housing Institute – which has a role in all five of the other Seattle-sanctioned encampments – about taking over. Meantime, its resident manager and co-founder Eric Davis says he was evicted and fired – he says it happened after camp leaders asked questions about the status of private funding to build more “tiny houses” at CSC; Patacara says it was “because he was failing to uphold the camp’s code of conduct.” Read the full story here.

  1. Since Camp Second Chance is right up the hill from South Park, this August 29th safety meeting in South Park should be an opportunity to learn more.

    Thanks to WCN for keeping us informed!

  2. I am about to publish this separately, but even before then, the Community Advisory Council meeting has now been rescheduled to this Sunday (August 27th), 2 pm at Arrowhead Gardens.
