Off-Site Housing
Off-Site Housing

As you know from the rules imposed by the police, we are not allowed to sleep on the encampment site, day or night. The police may patrol the site checking on this.

We have arranged for sleeping at St Stephen's Church,, located at 1525 Newton St., NW, Washington DC. This is at the corner of Newton and 16th Street. This arrangment is for Monday night, March 12, through Thursday night, March 15.

The church has requested that we ask for a donation per person of $5 per night.

The church is not far from the Columbia Heights Metro Station, located on the green line.

From the encampment, go west on Pennsylvania Ave. to the Archives Metro Station at Pennsylvania Ave. and 7th Ave. Take the Green Line (toward Greenbelt) and get off at the Columbia Heights Metro stop. Walk 3 blocks north on 14th Street to Newton Street. Go left one long block on Newton Street and the church will be on the right.

Sleeping will be on the floor; pew cushions may be used for sleeping pads. There are two men's bathrooms and two women's. There are no showers.

It is very important that you make every effort to arrive at St Stephen's between 6 pm and 9 pm.

St Stephen's does not allow cooking, smoking, hard liquor or illegal substances in the church. All trash is to be deposited in the outside dumpster.

There is no parking in the alley or the spaces or lots in the vicinity of the church; they do not belong to the church and parking there will result in tickets and towing. Space can usually be found on the street, such as Newton Street.
