Tent city returns to Rainier Valley church

Seattle Times staff: Seattle Times news services

SEATTLE - A tent city that is home to dozens of homeless people will spend the next two weeks in the parking lot of a Rainier Valley church.

On Sunday, residents of the tent city settled at Star of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, 5922 Rainier Ave. S., where they also had stayed in May. The two-week stay in some ways is a luxury. Since the tent city started March 31, residents have pitched their tents 11 times.
