Schools in Clark County are experiencing a high number of unaccompanied youth. The reasons vary, but the bottom line is young people striving to graduate need a safe and secure home while they do. The Refuge offers that to them through gracious host families.
There are many reasons a person finds themselves sleeping in their vehicles. We strive to provide a safe place for anyone sleeping in their vehicle to be safe while they work to stabilize their lives. State and federal governments permit faith communities to use their property (including parking lots) and their resources to carry out their mission. In many cities, church parking lots are the only places for people to park and sleep legally.
SafePark supports congregations who open their parking lots who are offering hospitality to those sleeping in their cars. Our solution is simple, any church with a parking lot across America can become an authorized SafePark location for those who are working to stabilize their lives while sleeping in the cars.
