Emerald Village

A dream of affordable housing came true in Eugene Friday. Emerald Village, a tiny house community, held an open house.  Some new residents received their keys.

Almost 4 years ago, Opportunity Village was established in Eugene. It’s a community of tiny houses for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The idea is to give people safe shelter as they transition to permanent housing. But there’s not enough affordable housing to serve the need, so a new village is in the works.
