Lately I have been applying the comprehensive research found on this page to a local project in my current city of Eugene, Oregon. The project has evolved out of the Occupy camp that drew significant attention to the city's unhoused population. After the camp was shut down the city formed a task force to find "new and innovative" ways to deal with the issue. Since then a team has been meeting regularly to develop a vision for what we are calling Opportunity Village. The project aims to learn from the best practices of various organized tent cities in order to create the most progressive model in the country.
