Vehicle Resident Outreach
What We Do
Nearly half of King County's unhoused population lives in their vehicles.
Vehicle Resident Outreach (VRO) supports people who live in their vehicles providing vehicle repairs, gas cards, basic needs supplies, housing navigation, connection to other community services, and ultimately, a pathway to stable housing.
Our team prioritizes client safety and stability first, recognizing that every person is an expert on their unique needs and see their inherent dignity and agency when seeking solutions with them. We conduct outreach in two-person teams in North and South Seattle pairing formerly unhoused staff with staff without lived experience. This combination brings stability and knowledge through lived experience to client interactions.
“Joe and Jonah have been coming and visiting me pretty often. They brought me to Goodwill and bought me clothes, they've got me food before, so I really appreciate them.”
