You see them in many neighborhoods: cars and vans stuffed with possessions, homeless car campers. According to the nonprofit in charge of a yearly one–night census of people sleeping outside, about 30 percent of the nearly 2500 counted are in vehicles. The issue is especially acute in Ballard. Soon, a Lutheran church in Ballard will host car campers in their parking lot and allow them to use church facilities. We'll talk to the pastor of the church.


Steve Grumm is a pastor of church and community at Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church in Ballard.

Jean Darsie is a member of the Ballard Community Task Force on Homelessness and Hunger.

Tim Harris is executive director of Real Change News.
