About the Project
After a successful collaborative effort to set up the Kenton Women’s Village (view the detailed project history here), City Repair is once again partnering with Catholic Charities, PSU's Center for Public Interest Design, Born and Raised LLC and our beloved sister organization Communitecture to create a sleeping pod village for 15 houseless veterans in Clackamas County for version 3.0 of Partners on Dwelling (POD) initiatve.
The purpose of the CVV is intended to provide shelter, facilities and services for Veterans who are homeless - as a transition to permanent housing.
Dignity and Respect: For each individual Veteran’s military service and experience
Self-Governance: A supportive group living environment of democratic structure and decision-making
Nature and the environment: that the physical, operational and social components work collaboratively with nature.
Treeline Stage at Pickathon
Through a creative partnership with PSU's Architecture program and the organizers of Pickathon Music Festival, the CC Vet Village team will be re-purposing 690 wooden gable trusses built by students in the making of 15 sleeping pods for houseless veterans at the village.
Given that this is once again, groundbreaking work, our timeline is ever-evolving. At the moment, we are set to start building the first wave of SRG's sleeping pods, Sat, Sept 23, 2017.
