PORTLAND, Ore — A community village for homeless people is in its final stages and today we got a look.
A local nonprofit built “tiny homes” on church property, the Parkrose Community United Church of Christ, on Northeast Halsey.
The community will feature 11 pods, each with beds inside for people to sleep on, and an outdoor courthouse will be a community/living room area.
As for security, the organization will build a six-foot-tall wooden fence, and each pod has an individualized lock.
The nonprofit that built all this is We Shine PDX.
The non-profit says they would like to replicate this community set up across the city.
