The Jackson Street Nickelsville homeless encampment will be receiving sleeping structures and tent platforms tomorrow, courtesy of a partnership between the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) and The Home Depot Foundation.

Get where you need to go. Pay a lot less to get there.
Now there’s a more affordable way to get to work, school, shopping, day care or anywhere else you need to go. It’s ORCA LIFT, a new, reduced transit fare that can help you get more out of your public transportation system.
Once you qualify for the ORCA LIFT program, you’ll receive an ORCA LIFT card registered to your name, with the same features every ORCA card has. You can load an E-purse value on your card to pay for trips one at a time, or load a discounted monthly pass that lets you take unlimited trips for an entire month. But what makes ORCA LIFT special is you have all the power and convenience of the ORCA card system at a fraction of the cost.
With the ORCA LIFT card, income-qualified riders can save up to 50 percent or more on:
Metro Transit buses
Kitsap Transit buses
Sound Transit Link light rail
King County Water Taxi
