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.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Clackamas County Veterans Village (CCVV) is intended to provide shelter, facilities and services for Veterans who are homeless - as a transition to permanent housing.

Guiding Principles

  1. Dignity and Respect: For each individual Veteran’s military service and experience

  2. Self-Governance: A supportive group living environment of democratic structure and decision-making

  3. 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 CCVV 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. 

Tentative Timeline

Construction began in October. 10 pods are in near completion by mid November and 5 more pods will start their construction phase. 

Get Involved!

With almost two hundred volunteers stepping forward we are being overloaded with support! Please be patience as we find work shifts and other ways for volunteers to continue to support this needed work. Donations of tools and meals are a high need right now. Internships to support the City Repair project team and our general work with the Village Coalition are also open, info click here.
