About the Project
We have numerous opportunities to interface with our houseless village building efforts within City Repair and as a member of the Village Coalition. For example, we are looking for interns to support Houseless Villages in participating in our largest annual program, the Village Building Convergence, to support Houseless villages administratively with meeting minutes, and documentation, and a host of other simple but profound ways that you can support your unhoused neighbors.

Volunteer for Phase 2 building
During the first phase of building, we so many of you express interest in this project that we had to turn a few of you away. Thank you for your generosity in helping us successfully complete 10 pods.
During this next phase of building the remaining 5 more pods, we are excited to help connect you to this groundbreaking work.

Project History and Inception
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 Clackamas County Veterans Village (CCVV) 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 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.
