WeShine designs, builds, and operates neighborhood-based micro-villages that provide safe transitional shelter and services, where Portland’s vulnerable unsheltered adults can live as they prepare to become successful tenants in permanent affordable housing.

Overview of WeShine’s Parkrose Community Village 6/30/2022

Parkrose Community Village (PCV) is WeShine’s first micro-village. Micro-villages are “transitional shelters”, designed to provide safety, privacy, hygiene, and community to people seeking permanent housing. PCV will include paid staff, lockable sleeping pods, laundry, showers, toilets, fencing, and a community building. Volunteers will help with art, gardening, financial literacy, food, pet care, and medical/nursing needs.

We seek to establish partnerships with property owners and neighborhoods, faith-based communities, local non-profits and businesses to create supportive temporary micro-villages that can be replicated throughout the metro area.
