About Safe Parking Pilot Program
The City of Beaverton is providing a Safe Parking Pilot Program to provide a safe, legal place to park for people experiencing homelessness and living out of their vehicles. While no one should have to live in their car, providing a safe place to park can help families and individuals in this situation stabilize their lives and gain better access to services.
What does the Safe Parking Program look like?
The City of Beaverton contracted with Just Compassion of East Washington County, a non-profit organization that will provide program management for the pilot year. Just Compassion will be responsible for intake and case management of the guests participating in the program.
The program will consist of host sites distributed throughout the city with assigned parking spaces and onsite portable restrooms, storage, and garbage removal.
