The City Club’s unique “Gifts to the City” is our annual holiday program. Several community members graciously offer their virtual “gifts” to the city. These gifts may be serious, offbeat, ironic, amusing, inspiring, entertaining, and/or challenging. The speakers from various walks of life explain what they would give if they had the power to do so, and why they would make the gift.

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. 

Opportunity Village

Tiny houses are recognized as a viable solution to the housing crisis in Oregon. Veneta is the latest community to help get people into homes they can afford.
