Unity Church Zoom Meeting October 7 on proposal to provide homeless services
Unity of Olympia
Shower Trailer and Temporary Shelter on its Property
Unity of Olympia, the church located at 1335 Fern St SW, has entered into an agreement with Build a Bus Home (BABH) to provide showers for the homeless on its property on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, for a period of 90 days. BABH will pull their shower trailer, along with related equipment, onto Unity’s property, and homeless individuals can be picked up by a shuttle for showers, based upon a schedule. All equipment will be removed at the end of the day, and all grey water will be hauled away. This will probably begin before the end of October 2020. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The homeless shelter located at 2828 Martin Way is going to be razed for the purpose of erecting a new building on that site. All guests at that shelter have to be relocated by November 1, 2020. Unity of Olympia is negotiating with Interfaith-Works Shelter as to whether one of its buildings, the Bishop Wing, would be suitable to house their guests for 5-6 months. The shelter is staffed 24 hrs/day with experienced, paid staff. The impact to the outward appearance of Unity’s property would be minimal.
For support, questions, or concerns, please join BABH and Unity for a neighbor informational Zoom meeting on Wednesday, October 7 at 7PM. The Zoom ID number is 846 1272 6706, password 351209, and the phone is 253 215-8782. Thank you for joining us.
