OpportUNITY Village Eugene (OVE)

“We had nothing; except we knew we could.
…approvals and scaled architect’s models
aren’t village…plywood and 2x4s aren’t
OpportUNITY Village — yet,” Alex talking,
handing me Village Agreements, “OVE’s
muscular documents we evolved from
Dignity Village and Right 2 Dream Too.”


“I will be a positive memberof this community
and contribute toward making ita safe, secure,
clean and pleasant place to live. Therefore I agree:


In a citizens’ democracy such documents
are worth our acquaintance:


“No violence
to myself or others.

No theft.

No alcohol,
illegal drugs,
or drug
paraphenalia.

No persistent,
disruptive
behavior.

Everyone must
contribute to
the operation and
maintenance
of the Village.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“What I do will be based on love
and respect for myself and others.
We can work together
to figure things out.”




OVE is a transitional village providing a safe, secure place for those without housing.



…a self-governing community based upon five basic rules.



…where all have the right to earn dignity and opportunity.
