In early February 2022 the Safe Rest Villages team announced that Cultivate Initiatives would be the shelter operators for the Menlo Park village. Located in the Hazelwood neighborhood, this site serves as a critical part of the Safe Rest Village (SRV) system, with distribution of services throughout Portland.
“Our team at Cultivate is eager to continue the work of uplifting our houseless neighbors in East Portland,” shared Y'Ishia Rosborough, Housing and Sheltering Director at Cultivate Initiatives. “We are happy to provide this service in the community we proudly serve.”
FAQ for this site:
A printable FAQ sheet for this site is available. It will be updated as things evolve.
Additionaly, the Hazelwood Neighborhood Association asked a number of questions of the SRV team shortly after the site was announced. Below are links to the responses - dated early November 2021. These were the best information we had at the time, but some things may have changed since that time (for example, we now have a shelter operator).
