The Housing Action Team
VISION: All residents have access to affordable housing options. Housing is energy efficient, provides a healthy living environment, and reduces waste through recycling and preservation; and all new construction minimizes impacts on our resources and environment.
Goal #4: By 2025, chronic homelessness will be reduced by 65%
Step 1: We assessed what is already available
We interviewed representatives of local organizations that deal with housing, homelessness and are addressing the lack of affordable housing
Step 2: Identified gaps to determine need
We talked informally with people in the community and found out that public perception of who is homeless and why they are homeless is incomplete
We now are on Step 3: Making a short video
The homeless, and those at risk of becoming homeless in Corvallis, will have a chance to tell their stories about what life is like for them—what is working and what is not. We plan to share the video with elected officials and the general public through Corvallis Access Media and social media.
We would love to have your help!
- No video experience is required
- We need people who are good organizers, good communicators and good listeners—people who can help create a safe place for our subjects to tell their stories
