Emerald Village in Eugene is a village of 22 tiny houses that is ready to start receiving folks who are now, or are in danger of becoming homeless.

Emerald Village must have a certain percentage of the tiny houses occupied by families. They have lots of applications from single folks, but very few from families.

Please let any family in a housing crisis know of this situation and have them print and fill out a form to apply.


Sunday Clinic 01/21/2018

Occupy Medical served 26 patients, 200 sandwiches, buckets of coffee and other drinks, lots of snacks, and about a hundred Burrito Brigade burritos. Wound care and our Herbalists were busy all day, as was our doctor. Socks and hand warmers were very popular, as well as a wide arrray of other personal items. We started out a bit short handed, but the volunteers just kept arriving, so we had a fantastic crew by the time things got really busy. The weather started off fairly warm, but wet with gusty winds, settling down to a steady rain by the end of Clinic. We all remained dry though, thanks to the great shelter provided by the freeway overpass. Overall everything went very smoothly and our patients and visitors had a great experience.

Roseburg Clinic

The Demonstration clinic in Roseburg went extremely well. We saw 14 patients, and our Herbalist sent a large quantity of herbal medicines and vitamins off with smiling patients. The local newspaper reporter did interviews with a photographer snapping pics. Two drivers stopped in the intersection to yell across at us how they loved what we were doing, and several passerby expressed similar sentiments. It was a very positive experience for all involved. The weather was much nicer than last months clinic, with warm and dry conditions.
