About

Nickelsville is a local homeless encampment (tent city) in the International District. The camp is self-managed, but regularly works with the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI). We're reaching out to our volunteers for their assistance with Nickelsville.

The camp wants to do more community outreach and service in their neighborhood. They need some help in making local community partnerships and finding local opportunities to perform community service. This volunteer would also need to help them track and report their community service hours.

The work can be done in a variety of settings. For instance, a volunteer may need to physically visit local organizations, visit the camp to get to know residents and assign service and by working at home, LIHI offices or SHARE offices (operator of Nickelsville) to do the related office work. We can work with you to find the best locations to do the needed tasks.
