About Santa Cruz Sanctuary Camp:
We assert that a citizen organized, community supported, safe-sleep-sanctuary can reduce the problems associated with homelessness in the community at large and also help those who are living outside.
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.

We are planning for a "Community Campout with the Homeless," an event bringing the entire community together for a campout under stars. It will feature music performance, dinner and breakfast. A fun time will be had by all.
