Are you troubled by the lack of support and resources available to unsheltered individuals in our community? Are you searching for a way to help? You can join with Nightingale Public Advocacy Collective (NPAC) as we launch a peer support specialist training project which will provide skills and support to 45 volunteers currently working to find solutions for those struggling with homelessness or housing insecurity.

Through the hard work of activists and their allies, Eugene has seen the adoption of model programs for our unhoused neighbors: Opportunity Village Eugene and the rest stops (tent camps) of Community Supported Shelter and Nightingale Health Sanctuary. While other groups focus on new sites, zoning changes, and tiny house models, NPAC’s focus is on the development of skills to strengthen the ability of individuals and sites to self-govern by offering free peer support specialist training.

By supporting this project you can increase the effectiveness of ongoing outreach and help spread tools of empowerment throughout the community.Read the rest

We hope to spread tools of empowerment throughout the houseless community so that individually, and collectively, the voices and ideas of those most affected are heard and resources are committed to address our community’s housing crisis.
