Yakima’s homeless encampment called Camp Hope continues to operate at near full capacity every night this summer. Camp Director Andy Ferguson with Transform Yakima Together says they’ll close on November 15 when the city cold weather shelters open. Next year some of the homeless could be in their own tiny homes instead of the camp. Ferguson says they’ve received 236,000 in grant funding to build 24 tiny homes over the next year to be placed on church properties around Yakima. “We’ll put a very nice looking little tiny home on a designed place on the churches lot. And the idea is we want to have these families or individuals be adopted by the church by the neighborhood and be a part of the community.”
Ferguson says the homes will be built over the next year using grant funding from the Yakima Valley Conference of Governments. The placing of the homes in church parking lots will be a first of a kind program in Yakima that Ferguson says could become popular around the state.
If you’d like to get involved with Camp Hope or donate meals or funds contact Andy Ferguson at 424 1228 or go to camphopeyakima.org.
