It is the brainchild of the residents of Camp Quixote, a tent camp that moved from one church parking lot to another from 2007-2013. Those residents attracted the support of faith communities and others who helped raise funds to build and manage the Village. It is a model that has inspired similar efforts far and wide, and will soon be replicated by its non-profit sponsor, Quixote Communities, formerly known as Panza.About the “Housing & Homeless Hero Award”:The “Housing & Homeless Hero Award” is a peer-chosen recognition of a direct service provider for exemplary service in the Housing & Homeless network of Thurston County.
