We're actively working on issues relating to immigration and the environment, among others.
Learn what Happened to the People Displaced by CalTrans
In late July a group of 25+ people who had been camping for a year on CalTrans property, near a freeway off-ramp south of San Clemente, were told they needed to evacuate in just a few days. Maura Mikulec and other volunteers in the San Clemente Affordable Housing Coalition mobilized on their behalf - including organizing a rally at which Rev Kent Doss spoke. Tapestry’s Welcoming Neighbors Home helped by sending out a call to action and our congregants responded. The eviction was delayed by 1 month.
Maura Mikulec leads the South County Homeless Task Force. She is a social worker who does volunteer street outreach in San Clemente. We are honored to have her serve as a “Canary” (aka City Monitor) for Dana Point for the Welcoming Neighbors Home Initiative. She is a compelling speaker because she knows the people involved – and this is an important case study to learn what happens when we focus a lot of advocacy effort to help a group of individuals in need.
Join us on Sunday November 14, at 12:00 p.m.
Join in-person at Tapestry, or via Zoom to hear from Maura Mikulec who will tell us what happened to the folks who were in the encampment. Learn how the homelessness “system” responded (or didn’t respond), how they were characterized by city officials and what we learned from doing all this advocacy.

Donations will go to local organizations serving those without homes. Especially needed are healthy small serving size foods, and small containers with a pop off lids that do not need to be heated.
