Licton Springs Tiny House Village at 8620 Aurora Ave. N. will have a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12 p.m. Friday for its new shower and laundry pavilion.
Opened in April and operated by The Low Income Housing Institute, the village is one of six sanctioned homeless encampments in Seattle, and the only low-barrier site. It has 30 tiny houses built by volunteers, and serves up to 70 homeless men and women. Residents are referred by police and outreach workers.
City Councilmember Debora Juarez and residents of the village will speak at the ceremony.
The village needs donations of bath towels, hygiene supplies and laundry detergent. Donations can be dropped off at the village’s security hut 24 hours a day.
