In April 2016, Rev. Meredith Dodd, author of “How welcoming a homeless encampment made our community stronger” and pastor of Bear Creek United Methodist Church in Woodinville, WA joined a small group of Eugene citizens in a conference call to learn how their community welcomed a small homeless encampment into their community.
The recording of that 46-minute call is archived here: https://fccdl.in/iJpcQv3zE, and notes are available online. With the Nightingale Health Sanctuary joining us at the end of the week, I thought it would be a good time to revisit this call.
To get involved with neighborhood volunteer efforts to support residents living in car camping and rest stop conditions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or join the Vulnerable Populations Working Group at our next meeting on Thursday, May 11 from 7:00pm-8:30pm at the Hilyard Community Center.
