Tracy Clayton

Shelter and Outreach Lead

My name is Tracy Clayton, I am 50 and I live… well that’s hard to answer. I kinda don’t feel like I really live anywhere. I guess you could say Ocean Shores.

I met Sarah while I was cleaning out an apartment building that was getting remodeled and she was there to check on the last few people who hadn’t moved yet. About a week later my house was condemned and I had 24 hours to get out. Luckily the church-hosted homeless camp was right next door. A few months later when winter came Sarah asked if I would help at the Aberdeen shelter. I had no idea that it would change my life. I love what I do. I have a kind of kinship with the struggling population, we kinda get each other.

I work in the Westport shelter, and Aberdeen Sunday dinner program and I’m the Wednesday sandwich person. When the temps are 35 or under or bad storms hit, I work the cold weather shelter. I love it.

I feel one of my greatest achievements with Chaplains was to have been part of closing the river camp. We helped people get through their world’s being literally destroyed right before their eyes, by people who didn’t care. The people living in the camp did it without any catastrophic events. They were accused of so many horrible things, I did not want the camp to be traumatized any further, and I like to think that I had a part in helping smooth things over a little. I am frigging damn proud of the camp for not giving the city the satisfaction it so wanted.

I really like to be there with my struggling friends so they don’t have to feel alone in this world. I want them to know that bad things happen to good people. I don’t want to sit at a desk. I am hands on. Hopefully showing maybe just a little that they are not alone in the suffering.
