New safe sleep site, Everyone Village, under development in Eugene

A developing “safe sleep” site in Eugene called Everyone Village aims to house 30 people by year’s end.

On a 3.5 acre space in West Eugene, a tow truck moved an RV onto the pavement, next to a Conestoga shelter and tiny house on wheels.

“We were so fortunate to have this donated,” said Heather Sielicki, co-lead for the site. “The motor doesn’t work anymore but the interior’s beautiful and will allow to us to have more couples being able to stay together.”

Organizers plan to have 17 RVs and 13 mini-shelters installed by late December. There’ll also be overnight security and a monitored entrance at the front of a newly-acquired warehouse on Janisse Street.
