Moving Pat’s Place ( 7 mins)

Feb. 5, 2022
In April of 2021, Community Build began building shelters for their second community for the unsheltered. The shelters for Pat’s Place were built on the property of the Evangelical Bible Church in Port Townsend with the permission of Jim Lyman, the Pastor of the church, and the congregation. In this video Dennis shows how the buildings of Pat’s Place were moved from the building site to the property where they now rest. It was quite a process! The village will be managed by Bayside Housing & Services. Residents have already begun moving in.
