There will be an open house for the public to see the village and learn about the program on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 950 SE Third Street.
The village has 10 sleeping units and a community building with bathrooms, showers, laundry and a kitchen. For the first six months, rent will be free, and then six months of $100 a month as residents get help in moving toward safe, permanent housing.
The estimated cost for the project is around $600,000. It originally was expected to open on March 15, but was set back due to supply issues.
NewsChannel 21’s Kelsey McGee is meeting with St. Vincent de Paul Society-Bend Executive Director Gary Hewitt to see how the village will operate. Her report will be on NewsChannel 21 at Five.
