About Chris & Lowell

100% of funds will be used for purchasing supplies for our homeless neighbors. 

We focus on organizing in the unhoused community in SODO, Seattle. We are working towards:
  1. Supporting residents of the unhoused community working together on projects to address needs in the community
  2. Supporting residents making and following through with plans with us
  3. Learning what is getting in the way of the above and alleviating these problems

Some strategies we use:
  1. Spend time in the community outside of our regularly scheduled "outreach" to talk with residents about things related to the above list
  2. Do twice-weekly "outreach" to deliver supplies (see below list), talk with residents, exchange propane tanks, and exchange ice packs
  3. Discuss our organizing with other similar collectives to get and give feedback and improve our organizing. This is done through smaller group chats, video calls, and the Homeless Organizing Community Seattle Facebook group that we created in Feb 2020.

Money that we get from Patreon, Kindest, a grant from SVO, and our paychecks is spent on:
  1. Refilling and exchanging propane tanks: We fund volunteers doing this for unhoused folks. We also provide some unhoused people with debit cards to fund them refilling propane tanks for themselves and their neighbors.
  2. Priority Reusable Supplies: On request, making appointments with people to provide batteries, fire extinguishers, headlamps, pepper spray, phones, propane accessories (hoses, stoves, heaters), sleeping bags, small tents, tarps, and watches.
  3. Generators and gasoline
  4. General supplies for outreach, such as water, beef jerky, other snacks, and toiletries
  5. Special requests from residents, such as clothing, boots, and tools
