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.

Guest(s)

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.
