SAFE OVERNIGHT SHELTER FAQ'S

The answers to these frequently asked questions have been modified and clarified after recent conversations with neighbors and the Safe Overnight Shelter Team.  Watch this website for additional information in coming days. We will be meeting with neighbors to plan a neighborhood meeting. We put a stop in the review process with the county to give neighbors more time to learn specifics of this program and to share their feelings with Zoning and Planning.

Here is a letter from Clackamas County Planning and Zoning which puts decisions about the Safe Overnight Shelter pilot program that KoK wants to host on hold until June 30th. There will be a community meeting soon. We will post it’s date time and place when we know it. click here

HOW WE GOT TO THIS POINT: SOS Narrative

Why would a church want to do this?

King of Kings congregation has been reaching out to help less fortunate neighbors for many years.  This Safe Overnight Shelter Pilot program is designed to provide a homeless neighbor with a chance for a safe night’s sleep.  The congregation would link clients with support services so that people can find hope and cycle out of homelessness.

How many cars will be authorized to park in the church lot?

A maximum of 3 vehicles.

What will be the hours?

Vehicles will be permitted to park from 6 pm to 8 am, though hours may be modified for guests according to their work schedule.

Where in the parking lot will the vehicles park?

Vehicles will be allocated spaces close to the church on the north side of our building rather than on the north side of the parking lot near Vista Court. 

What about garbage?

The church will provide trash collection.  Clients will agree to rules about keeping spaces around vehicles tidy.

What about bathrooms?

The church will provide a porta-potty and a hand-washing station.

What about visitors?

Visitors will be allowed between 6pm and 8:30pm. and will be expected to abide by the Safe Overnight Shelter rules.

What about pets?

Pets will be considered on a case by case basis.

What if unauthorized campers come and try to join the authorized ones?

Unauthorized campers will be asked to move along as soon as the church becomes aware of their presence.  They will be provided with a packet of information about resources and the application process for Safe Overnight Shelter. 

What about cooking?

Guests may cook near their vehicles using approved appliances and cleaning up immediately afterward.

What about drugs and alcohol?

Drugs and alcohol will be strictly prohibited on or near church grounds. 

 

Who do I call if there are problems?

Our Providence Outreach Specialist will provide mediation training for a team of “mediators” who will be on call 24 hrs/day to help resolve problems. Any neighbor can have access to this number. The County Sheriffs Dept. will also be aware of this program and can be called if/when necessary.
