Burnside group grows, gets a portable toilet donated

The group of people experiencing homelessness on NW 4th and Burnside continues to grow. Starting out at eight individuals with three tents, the group now stands at nearly 60 individuals with nearly 30 tents. In the past 24-hours a private citizen donated a portable toilet (seen below) and local carpenters volunteered throughout the day and night to help build slabs for tents to rest on.

Yesterday the group calling themselves, “Right to Dream Too,” shared with Street Roots blueprints for how they envision the space over the next year.
