As the saying goes, it takes a village. Spanaway’s homelessness problem is not going to go away by any government action. It literally will take a little help from us all. Whether that’s giving to the local Food Bank while checking out at the grocery store or donating time at a Freezing Nights shelter location.
The Spanaway Methodist Church has been working on more ways they can help address this situation. Pastor Samara Jenkins spoke briefly at the Mid-County Leadership meeting about their efforts. They are inviting interested members of the public to attend Friday’s meeting at the church, 135 163rd Street S, Spanaway.
From the SUMC email: “This Friday, 1/13, from noon to 3 pm is the Community Meeting about Family Promise. All are welcome to attend.”
From the Family Promise website:
Our mission is to help families experiencing homelessness and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.
If you live in our near Spanaway and are moved to find out more about solutions to help our homeless population, please attend if you are able. The PPP will try to cover this meeting and fill you in with more information afterward.
