With your help, Panza can provide the best staff, programs and services at Quixote Village, permanent supportive housing for homeless adults

Quixote Village: A Model for Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless Adults in Olympia, Washington

The Village

Operated by the nonprofit, Panza, Quixote Village provides 30 tiny houses with heat and electricity, half baths and front porches. The cottages surround a community building containing a full kitchen and living room, laundry and bathing facilities, offices and a meeting room. Each cottage houses a formerly homeless adult, age 18-65, who pays 30% of his/her monthly income, if any, for rent. To qualify for residency, applicants must be homeless and have an income that is not more than 30% of the area median income in Thurston County.

The Tradition

Quixote Village began as an idea of the tent-dwelling residents of Camp Quixote who, in 2007, envisioned a permanent village for previously homeless adults. Camp Quixote’s traditions of self-governance and self-reliance continue today at the Village, where residents participate in a Resident Council, elect its Executive Committee, share in the chores of maintaining the community building and grounds, and advise Panza staff on admissions and other issues

Our Programs

At Quixote Village a Program Manager and a Resident Advocate help residents set and attain life goals. Staff help residents access services for recovery from addiction, physical and mental health care, disability benefits, job training, and educational opportunities. Volunteers bring recreational programs, share meals and activities with residents, and are a link to their involvement in the larger communities of Olympia and Thurston County.

How You Can Help

While Panza receives a significant portion of its annual operating budget (presently about $240,000) from federal, state, local and tribal governments, it still needs to raise about 15% of that amount from private sources every year. Your donation to Panza will help us provide the best staff, programs and services for people who urgently need them. Please help, and thank you!
