May is the inaugural month of the Community Care Centers new evening workshop program aimed at continued community education and engagement. We are kicking it off Thursday May 17th with "What is Harm Reduction, and why does it work?"
Join us at the Community Care Center to explore what Harm Reduction is, what it isn't, how we implement it in our daily lives, and why we integrate it into services for our neighbors experiencing homelessness.
We hope to see you there!

On May 1st, a group of protestors distributed a flyer in Olympia's South Capitol neighborhood that supported a demonstration at Mayor Cheryl Selby's house. The flyer specifically named Interfaith Works Warming Center funding decisions as one reason behind the protest. We want to reassure our community that we do not condone this action, nor had any knowledge about it beforehand. Please click the image below to read our full statement to the community on this issue, and join us as we recommit ourselves to partnership, bridge building, and community healing, just as we have done for four decades in Thurston County. Thank you. <3 <3 <3
