Partnering with Grace Christian Church in Mountain View, Supervisor Simitian developed a pilot program, Lots of Love Safe Parking. The goal is to give those living in cars or RVs an overnight spot in a church parking lot, along with access to the church’s facilities. Many people living in vehicles are first-time homeless, often for less than a year, and many have jobs. The ultimate goal is to transition the roughly 600 RV residents in Mountain View into permanent housing.
