Safe Parking
Program

A Safe Place For Unhoused Neighbors

For individuals who have lost their homes, living in a car or camper may be their only option besides sleeping on the street. However, finding a safe, legal place to park can be a challenge. The Safe Parking Program sites are established in cooperation with faith communities, businesses, non-profit organizations, government offices, and private landowners.
