Save Our Sequim Legal Fund

$0   Raised


Welcome to Snowball Funding, our new donation platform! Funds previously raised are not reflected on this page.
January 2020: To date we have raised over $123,000 to 'Save Our Sequim'. In November 2019 we opened a dedicated Legal Fund account with Sound Community Bank. To date we have spent $32,759 on legal fees and currently have $50,000 in the Legal Fund account. The General account balance is $18,657. Our goal? We need another $100-150,000 for the Legal Fund. Our opponents have deep pockets and stand to make tens of millions from the MAT clinic should we not win this fight. Thank you for your generous contributions!
We are 100% volunteer based. S.O.S. is a 501(c)(4) not for profit organization. Donations are not tax deductible.
Sequim is a small town of 7,108 people on the north shore of Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula. As a quiet retirement community with a median age 49% above the WA state average, Sequim is home to the world-famous annual Lavender Festival and a thriving tourism industry. Sequim is also a rural farming community with deep pioneer roots.
The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Olympic Medical Center and Jefferson Healthcare (the Developers), in collaboration with city, county, state, and congressional leaders have made plans to bring a regional scale, multi-phased opioid addiction rehabilitation center and mental health inpatient facility to tiny Sequim. There is currently excess treatment capacity available within twelve miles of Sequim. There is no current data to confirm additional need for this facility.
Sequim does not have the necessary supportive services for a 17,000 square foot regional opioid addiction treatment center, ultimately expanding to a 25,000 square foot inpatient psychological hospital and detox facility. The expected clientele would expand Sequim’s current population by 16%, without adequate housing and social support networks available to serve them. This population is known to rely heavily on social services and Sequim is ill-equipped to accommodate these needs.
Please help us to push back against the wealthy and powerful Developers who wish to bring this facility to Sequim for their own financial gain. Their efforts should be redirected to improving programs already in place within the Region.
