Reporters Warren Kagarise and Chantelle Lusebrink will bed down at Tent City 4 on Friday to report in-depth coverage about the homeless encampment.

The reporters will talk with Tent City 4 residents and volunteers, break bread with the community and learn how the camp operates. The homeless encampment returned to Community Church of Issaquah last week.

The reporters plan to arrive at the camp as residents return from jobs, and talk with residents about life in the encampment, the rules occupants must obey to remain, the circumstances behind their journey to Tent City 4 — and help readers relate to how the residents reached the encampment, and Issaquah.

Follow the reporters on Twitter @wkagarise and @clusebrink for their observations from the encampment.

The camp hosts up 100 people; about 80 people usually reside in the community. Community Church last hosted Tent City 4 from August to November 2007. Organizers praised the community for welcoming camp residents during the 2007 stay.
