A primary goal of Opportunity Village is to provide precedence to other cities facing a similar, seemingly intractable dilemma - a growing homeless population coinciding with significant cuts to government funding of social services. Open now for just under three months, the project has already attracted visitors from throughout Oregon and California, and as far as Madison Wisconsin.
Recently, a group of advocates from Humboldt County visited to learn more. They filmed their tour of the village and also, upon their return, they hosted a radio program on Redwood Community Radio where we discuss the building of the village.
