Building Dignity Village

  1. Were/are you able to obtain grants to assist you in building at Dignity Village? Did the area you’re located at get purchased by an individual or by whom? Were there zoning issues you had to get through before building Dignity Village? Many questions….

    1. Hi Susan!

      Most of our structures were built with donations, either financial or building materials. The City of Portland owns the land we’re on, and we have a contract with the City to manage a “transitional housing campground” per a specific statute in Oregon law (check out the contract page for more detail.) Finally, that same Oregon statute allowed Dignity Village to be sited where we are despite the zoning.
