Letter of support for Nickelsville from its former neighbors on Jackson St:
September 2, 2014
Jackson Place Community Council

c/o Seattle Neighborhood Service Center 2301 S. Jackson, #208 Seattle WA 98144
To whom it may concern: The residents of the Nickelsville Family Camp located near 20th S and S Jackson St have been our good neighbors for almost a full year. When they first arrived, a group of their leaders visited the Jackson Place Community Council (JPCC) and explained how they govern and manage their residents. Their rules are strict but fair, and they do not tolerate violence or use of alcohol and drugs. These leaders and residents could be any of us in different circumstances, and they are proud and determined to make the best of their situation.
During their time in our community, the JPCC has never received any complaints about Nickelsville or its residents. They have been, and continue to be good citizens. Further, working with local service providers, residents of Nickelsville have an excellent chance of placement of in more formal housing. We have been happy to support these families in crisis as they transition into a more stable situation.
As Nickelsville Family Camp prepares to move to their new location, the JPCC warmly commends them for their time in our neighborhood, and recommends them to their new neighborhood.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Respectfully submitted, Ann McNally Chair, Jackson Place Community Council
