Your Sunday Offering committee is pleased to introduce you to our June Cause. Panza dba Quixote Communities creates and manages tiny home villages that foster community, encourage personal growth, and promote access to care and services. It all began when Camp Quixote, a tent city, was established in downtown Olympia in 2007 to protest a city ordinance that banned lying or sitting on sidewalks in the downtown core. In February of 2007, the campers moved to Olympia UUC, the first of seven local churches that would host the camp over the next six years. On December 24, 2013, the 30 residents of Camp Quixote left their tents behind and became residents of Quixote Village. Panza’s vision is simple: A community safely housed. A path to stability. A better quality of life. They accomplish this by creating and managing tiny home villages that provide residents with one-on-one staff support to help them determine and meet their needs and many opportunities to learn leadership skills. On May 10, 2021 Quixote Communities began the phased opening of their second community called, Orting Veterans Village. At full capacity, this new tiny home village will house 35 homeless veterans living in Pierce County.
