There are many ways folks come to live outside in our community but the avenues back to living in a shelter or home are pitifully few, and, sadly, the problems of homelessness exacerbate the conditions of homelessness.
Despite the great expense, only 5% of the homeless population are in the shelter system.
For pennies on the hundreds of dollars spent on this problem there is an effective solution.
We propose a Sanctuary camp that features a strong set of rules consistently enforced.
Sanctuary camps have shown positive results in many cities on the west coast.

Santa Cruz Sanctuary Camp and Warming Center
A Warming Center is a warm and safe place for people to sleep when there is a forecast of 32 degrees or lower or if there have been levels of rain that could lead to serious health problems.
