Agreement is between the City of Portland, acting by and through the
City Council, (the City), and Dignity Village, an Oregon non-profit
corporation (the Contractor).
Homelessness is an ongoing national
dilemma with an estimated three million people sleeping outside at
some time during any given year. Portland’s publicly funded year
round homeless shelters have permanent waiting lists. Due to limited
shelter space and a lack of affordable housing, many people in
Portland have no practical alternative to homelessness. Despite
on-going efforts to address homelessness in the Portland
metropolitan region, as recently as January, 2007, a study of the
homeless within Portland counted over 1400 homeless people in
Portland sleeping outside on one night.
In Resolution No. 36200, passed
February 26, 2004, the Portland City Council designated a specific
portion of property owned by the City, commonly known as Sunderland
Recycling Facility, located at 9325 NE Sunderland Road, Tax Lot 100
1N1E12B (Tax Account R-315196), as a campground under the terms of
ORS 446.265 (the “Designated Campground”). The intent of the
City of Portland in contracting with Dignity Village is for the
contractor to provide temporary housing for otherwise homeless
individuals and to help its temporary residents find permanent
Dignity Village is incorporated in
Oregon as a non-profit corporation. Dignity Village has
independently developed a proposal to provide an alternative to
sleeping outside for the homeless within Portland. Local religious
organizations, schools, philanthropists, architects, and others have
combined to help Dignity Village develop a community approach to
addressing homelessness. Due to on-going shortages of adequate
shelter space and affordable permanent housing, the transitional
housing accommodations provided by Dignity Village would be used by
persons who lack permanent shelter, and who have not been placed
into low-income housing.
The model for Dignity Village
functions upon a democratically elected governance model for the
administration of day-to-day operations and regulation. Dignity
Village strives to generally provide some group services such as a
kitchen, bathrooms and community telephones. Dignity Village, with
the assistance of donated materials, equipment and labor, builds
transitional housing structures that are capable of being
transported from location to location. Dignity Village is the owner
of these structures. Representatives from Dignity Village, including
architects, have worked with the Bureau of Development Services in
developing plans for transitional housing structures that will
comply with the requirements of ORS 446.265. Dignity Village
provides residents with job training opportunities, continuing
education opportunities, healthcare, and access to housing placement
assistance and a supportive environment in which homeless people are
able to address the issues that led to them becoming homeless.
City of Portland desires to have someone serve as manager for the
Designated Campground. Dignity Village is willing to provide this
management service as a steward of the property. Dignity Village will
provide a unique and coordinated services program developed by
Dignity Village. There is no other potential provider of the services
with the experience, expertise, and capability of Dignity Village for
this particular program. It therefore is appropriate for the City to
contract with Dignity Village for the provision of services for the
the Office of Transportation, the Bureau of Maintenance has developed
a master plan for the phased development of Sunderland Recycling
Facility for presentation to the City Council. On February 8, 2006,
the City Council adopted the Sunderland Recycling Facility Master
Plan 2005. Resolution No. 36376. This Agreement anticipates the
completion of this master plan.
