Please join us in celebrating the opening of our third Safe Stay Community before our new residents move in! All are welcome to tour the community and meet the nonprofit operator Outsiders Inn.

Safe Stay Communities are home to 20 temporary modular structures offering up to 40 residents safer and more stabilizing shelter as they work to transition out of homelessness.

The temporary community will improve public health, safety and cleanliness for both the housed and unhoused by:

  • Offering residents greater access to services, increased stability, and safe, healthy, and humane living conditions to transition out of homelessness
  • Reducing garbage, trash and clutter in public spaces
  • Relocating residents who are currently living in tents or vehicles. As part of the opening, the City has worked with local nonprofits and the City’s Homelessness Assistance and Resources Team to relocate unhoused residents, prioritizing those living in camps in the downtown area, to this site
  • Prohibiting camping within 1,000 feet of the site

This location will be the third of several supportive sites the City is establishing as part of our Homelessness Response Plan.
