▶️ Part 2: Grateful graduates of ‘Opportunity Village’ find stability


The people who run “Opportunity Village” in Eugene have data showing about 60% of their residents move on to permanent housing and a more stable life.

That’s added up to about 100 total since the Village opened in the fall of 2013.

This, in a city where an estimated 2,500 need help finding reasonable shelter every night; a city at or near the top in terms of per capita homelessness when ranked against all other American cities.

We met two of Opportunity Village’s “graduates,” Paul and Alice.

They were willing to share their stories of life on the streets, finding stability and moving on in a more positive direction.
