CAMP SECOND CHANCE: Management changes at Seattle-sanctioned camp

August 19th, 2017 Tracy Posted in Myers Way, White Center news 1 Comment »

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.
