Contact Info

Hansen Wendlandt, currently pastor at Community of Grace Presbyterian Church (Sandy, UT), recently served Nederland Community Presbyterian and presided over the Nederland Interagency Council on Homeless Encampments (NICHE). The church works with unhoused campers, by offering a weekly meal, peaceful room to rest, and access to resources like socks, hygiene products, and cell-charging. NICHE is a collaborative organization (Forest Service, local sheriff/police and fire, human services agencies, local and state government offices) that fosters public health and safety through care for the vulnerable, stewardship of natural resources, and respect for the needs of the mountain community.
