The Basics

How One Starfish Safe Parking Works


Religious organizations, non-profits, businesses and municipalities interested in participating in the program sign an agreement with One Starfish Safe Parking & Supportive Services that includes a set of rules for program participants making use of their property.

Clients seeking to participate in this program take part in an intake assessment to determine eligibility. Ongoing counseling is designed to identify immediate crises and establish long-term goals.

We work with police and have lot monitors to ensure the safety of guests.

Once accepted, each One Starfish guest will have 30-day access to safe overnight parking and are required to attend regular meetings with One Starfish social workers to assist in reaching the participant’s and program goals. After every 30 days, eligibility to remain in the program is assessed.
