Tent City4 is still at St. John Vianney, and they still need supplies. There are now about 40 residents at that site. At least for now we have 2 tent cities on the Eastside to support. They are very low on supplies.

For the congregation, neighbors, schools, groups using our building and other community partners:
At our All-Church Conference on Sunday, November 11, 2012, the congregation and leaders of Lake Washington United Methodist Church voted unanimously to invite Tent City 4 to return for a 92 day stay beginning January 12, 2013.
At the time, we were not aware of the recent events leading to the arrest of a suspect in a case of child rape and child molestation in Tacoma. The arrest was made at the camp on November 7, during the camp’s stay at St. John Vianney Catholic Church on 84th Avenue Northeast on Kirkland’s Finn Hill.
As with all residents, the camp conducted sex-offender and bench-warrant background checks . The checks did not indicate either, because the suspect had not been charged.
Though we have not confirmed it with the authorities, we believe the Tacoma police were able to locate the suspect because the camp entered his information into the system to conduct the background checks.
