parked in plain sight

There is an ever increasing phenomenon of individuals, and even families, living in their vehicles. Those who have lost their housing view the vehicle as the final option to keep a solid roof overhead, and even a distant sense of normalcy. We work to connect neighbors with the resources they need to reverse this situation.
