In this video, Panda gives us a tour of Seattle’s sanctioned Tent City 5 Interbay. He mentions that people don’t take the time to find out why people are homeless. Making invisible people visible is the foundation of our work so in this video we get to know a little more about Panda.

Panda heard about Seattle’s tiny villages, and because he has always wanted to participate in a community, he moved in. “Having a place to call home is important,” he adds. Panda wanted to be involved in something good that helps people who suffer from chronic homelessness.

Panda is disabled. He cannot work. As a single dad, he raised two children. After they grew up and moved out, Panda no longer qualified for Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher and ended up on the streets.

Here is the Facebook page for Tiny Cabins 5 if you’d like to contact Panda and learn more about their community.

We imagine a world where everyone has a place to call home. Until then, we strive to be the most trusted source for homelessness.
