Abstract

Vehicle residents are a growing part of homeless populations. This guide examines case studies of successful safe parking programs in Washington and California that mitigate harm to vehicle residents and offer support that can lift people out of poverty and into stable, permanent housing. This report synthesizes key lessons from successful Safe Parking Programs, specifically around operational, legal, and public relations or messaging issues.

Keywords: vehicle residents, homeless, safe parking, constitutional law, scofflaw, harm mitigation
