A group of Episcopal chaplains who for several years have ministered to homeless individuals in the coastal communities of Grays Harbor County, Washington, are standing in support of about a hundred people who face eviction from a riverbank encampment in Aberdeen.

The legal battle over the fate of the encampment, which the city has long sought to clear, could enter a new phase next week. The city announced it would conduct “a comprehensive clean-up of the property” starting July 15.
