Microshelters are well designed stick built rooms that provide transitional housing...a place to sleep and store personal belongings. Due to their relatively small size, they can be moved as needed. They are placed on the properties of religious institutions around town to provide transitional housing for people without a home. The Corvallis' City Council has approved the first permit applications for these to be placed through a formal review process. As of today, there are five religious institution locations that have microshelters on their property.
We express our sincere appreciation to these religious institutions who are courageous pioneers in the effort to end homelessness. They are champions! The first three participating religious institutions are:
Microshelters Under Construction
Many General Contractors and Subcontractors have participated in the construction of the microshelters, which are being placed around Corvallis.
