With the number of unhoused people on the rise in King County and many depending on their vehicle as shelter, OCC has established a Safe Parking ministry to provide a temporary and safe place for up to 15 single men and couples who are homeless with no place to stay except in their vehicles.
In addition to a place to park, relax and sleep overnight without fear of harassment or arrest for trespassing, we offer:
MONDAY NIGHT DINNERS: If you’d like to provide a meal for the Monday Night Community Dinner, click HERE and add your name to the list.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON LUNCHES: If you’d like to provide a meal for the weekly Saturday Lunches, click HERE and add your name to the list.
VOLUNTEER: Interested in becoming a Companion to a Safe Parking resident? Click HERE and select 'Safe Parking' from the dropdown list.

WHAT DO WE NEED?
Women's Hygiene Products
Food & Clothing: While we appreciate the loving heart behind these gifts, the Safe Parking Ministry cannot use donations of food or clothing. Please direct food donations to Woodinville Storehouse Foodbank. Clothing donations can be dropped off at the Jubilee Reach Thrift Store. Overlake is grateful to be able to partner with both of these community organizations.
If you have items not on this list that you would like to donate, please call 425.895.5923 to check before dropping them off.
"People at OCC have listened and taken into consideration what we've gone through and not judged us just on the fact that we are homeless."
"Since we've been at OCC there have been nothing but blessings and things to help us get in the direction we need to go as a couple."
"I'm so touched that you offer this truly Christ-like program to the homeless community. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
