Our Current Projects

A Women’s Shelter of Hope

Habitat & Hope is working with the Unitarian Universal Congregation of Salem, Oregon (UUCS) and the Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency (MWVCAA)

to help make this development a possibility.

UUCS will provide the property for the development and MWVCAA will provide case managers for professional guidance to assure success for our clients when moving

into stable and permanent housing. This project will be for single adult women.

As progress develops, we hope to include other non-profit groups, faith based organizations and concerned individuals to join in helping to make this become a reality.

Habitat & Hope Village is constructing 

a Portable / Movable Shower Trailer

for a local Micro Shelter Community


Habitat & Hope Village (HHV) is working to fill a very important service to Salem’s Unsheltered Communities. Progress is being made to house our unsheltered citizens with the development of new Managed Micro Shelter Communities. 

Church@thePark, a local nonprofit that works directly with Salem’s unsheltered population, has received donations for the purchase of 120 micro shelter houses. Thank you to everyone who participated in making these projects become a reality.

Now that more people are being housed, HHV is creating mobile shower and laundry facilities to support the hygiene needs of the residents. HHV is contracting with Cozy Home Inc., a Salem construction company specializing in small homes and micro shelters, to build the shower trailer. HHV will donate our first shower trailer to Church@thePark for use in their Managed Micro Shelter Communities.

Check out our shower trailer design and other possibilities. Please help fund these needed facilities. Working together we will make a difference in the quality of life for our unsheltered neighbors and our community.
