Project Description

Thank You to Sponsors and Supporters

TENT CITY 2024  |  Oct. 18 – 20

MISSION: To use Community Collaboration Leverage to deliver the entire community’s compassion to those on the streets and in the shelters.
Started in 1990, our annual Tent City brings the entire community together to provide solutions, 1 at a time. This has evolved into a weekend-long festival of compassion where volunteers provide medical, dental, food, clothing, employment, the return to housing, critical documents, haircuts, and other services to those in need. Whether volunteer or guest, each person truly connects with another, with new opportunities and perspectives, to create mutual accomplishment. That’s a 1Matter’s Tent City.

Thank you for joining us at the corner of Love and Compassion.  You helped us all find ourselves there. We don’t have the final numbers yet, but you also helped about 1,200 people get served 2,800 meals, 172 haircuts, 350 medical services, 200 ID’s and Birth Certificates. Plus about 287,000 smiles and 93,567 hugs were served. We hope you got some of them.  Save the date, October 18-20, 2024,
