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.
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.
