Stanley Timmings is seen through the door of the RV where he lived with his girlfriend on the streets of Seattle in 2017. Timmings was parked just north of Boeing Field, the King County International Airport, along with a group of fellow RV-dwellers. When asked about the lack of services for people living in their cars, Mark Putnam, former director of All Home in Seattle, the coordinating board fighting homelessness, said, “I don’t believe the city of Seattle, through their RFP (Seattle last year rebid $34 million in homeless services contract), received an application from an agency saying we want to do that work, with the 40 percent of the unsheltered population living in cars. I don’t know why that is.”
