We Shine PDX said the village is hoping to serve about 10 to 12 people with an 8-foot-by-8-foot pod, showers, restrooms, and other amenities, like a community garden.
Janet McManus, the executive director of We Shine PDX, says the village is in an ideal location.
“It’s on a transportation arterial, it’s in the heart of the Russell neighborhood, it’s close to services, retail and health care facilities. To us, it meets the criteria to be a wonderful site,” said McManus.
We Shine PDX is looking to open two more micro-villages this year.
