Eugene Focuses On Homeless In "Dignity Project"

Community Supported Shelters
/

We've been talking about homelessness for decades now.  Yet it seems like we're just beginning to understand its causes and effects... to say nothing of the people who end up homeless. 

Community Supported Shelters in Eugene had something to say. 

CSS helps shelter the homeless at places like Opportunity Village Eugene.  CSS and some partners just assembled a documentary and still-photography project, "The Dignity Project," to help people know and understand the faces and stories of homeless people. 

CSS Executive Director Erik de Buhr join us, along with board member and project director Paula Goodbar.
