Village Coalition

Since the founding of Dignity Village in the early 2000’s, we have been supporting houseless people with design support, community builds, policy advocacy, and giving a spotlight and platform to community members. We recently helped Right 2 Dream Too (R2DToo) design their new village and are an active member of a Village Coalition which is crafting design and policy to aid the creation and implementation of houseless villages in Portland.
