A Word from the Executive Director

Executive Director Sean McGrady

Ten years ago we sprang forth from a tent camp in a downtown Olympia parking lot. Supported by the local faith communities and a caring citizenry, a world of miracles would soon follow.

Today we are a tiny house community that inspires others to walk in our path. Quixote Village—built on the original tent residents’ vision and design —is a winner of two national design awards and a thought leader on innovative and affordable housing and what’s possible when we roll our sleeves up together.

Only this last September, Quixote Village was honored and featured in a design exhibition from Cooper Hewitt—the Smithsonian Design Museum —“By the People: Designing a Better America.” None of this of course would be possible without your amazing help.

Today Quixote Village is a true haven—a vibrant and peaceful place to live.
Quixote residents share chores and routine maintenance—and work and pull together to create a true community that everyone can take pride in.

But our work is not done.
I have exciting news to share about where we are going next. We are in the early planning stages to build more tiny house communities for our most vulnerable and in need. For a sneak preview of what’s next for Panza/ Quixote Village, click on this link:Tiny House Justice

If you believe in and support this kind of dedicated work, I hope you will write a check or make a donation on Razoo. You can even become a monthly member of Panza/Quixote Village for continuous and sustainable support.

Thank you for sharing the adventure with us.
