Hundreds of people sleep on the streets of Portland every night, there are often no beds available at shelters, and it can take months or even years to get into transitional or permanent affordable housing. In response, Right 2 Survive organized a safe place where people can sleep undisturbed for a period of 8-12 hours, or stay longer as a community member while they work to access housing, health care, employment opportunities, and advocate for other houseless people. This place is Right 2 Dream Too (R2DToo) and was opened on October 10th, 2011.
Over the past two years, over 70 people have found jobs and housing with the support of R2DToo.Tentative Schedule:
