How we get funding
We operate primarily on donor dollars. These come from community members, just like you, who are interested in helping the most vulnerable among us to meet their basic needs. We have been fortunate to meet our capital needs: purchasing the Conestoga huts, warming and storage shelters, with grant and/or restricted funds. Additionally, we have secured special funding to assist us with the additional costs attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic, but the monthly cost of operations is funded by donors.
Rest Stop Program
A rest stop is a designated area within city limits that has been approved by the Eugene City Council where up to 20 people are allowed to sleep in tents or Conestoga Huts. Unless for security or health reasons, residents vacate the site during the day and a limited number of visitors are permitted during designated hours. There are currently four rest stops in Eugene that provide a temporary, safe, legal option for people experiencing homelessness. The City enters into an agreement with a nonprofit organization to manage the rest stops and the program must be periodically renewed by the City Council.
