Greetings friends!

Few big announcements today:

1. Our “Soft Opening” date has been set for January 26th. We will have a limited work day that focuses on “catching bugs” in the build process and tent layout. The team will be tilting up walls and assembling roofs on day one. Be part of the team, sign up at our new Volunteer Portal

2. There is now a  Volunteer Portal for all upcoming volunteer opportunities. I have added 4 build dates to the system.  Sign ups are required for all volunteers (even if you have been on site before). It’s an easy process and it guarantees that we will have a slot for you on the build date. See the upcoming dates and sign up today!  

3. We now have a website! www.soundfoundationsnw.org Thank you to Barb Oliver and her company Webmasters Northwest for bringing this together.

If you would like to donate a lunch for the build team for January 26th, please coordinate with Michelle Gaither at gaithermj@gmail.com

Good Day,

Trickle Down Town

A recent documentary about the Seattle homeless crisis that features the Camp Second Chance tiny home building project will be shown at UW. This event is co-hosted by King County Council members Jeanne Kohl-Welles and Larry Gossett, and the University of Washington Law, Societies & Justice Department. The program brings together advocates, students, constituents, and policymakers to explore the issue of homelessness in Seattle. Following the film, there will be a brief Q&A portion for audience members to ask questions to our panelists.
