"The neighborhood has recently become a safe haven for people experiencing homelessness. In June of 2022, 30 tiny houses opened their doors for people transitioning out of homelessness in the Village’s former Sears Armory site. Prior to its opening, some neighbors spoke out against the Multnomah Safe Rest Village’s (SRV) location. But by October of 2022, many neighbors acknowledged that the Multnomah SRV was a quiet and peaceful site, and support for it has spread. At a recent neighborhood association meeting, residents discussed how they could help Safe Rest Village residents keep warm through the winter. The organization Friends of the Multnomah Safe Rest Village, a group of neighbors, churches, schools and businesses, has also sprung up to support the SRV’s success."
