Lane students construct homes for the unhoused

Earlier this year, Lane County students hit the nail on the head – chipping away at the unhoused crisis through the “Constructing a Brighter Future Project,” aimed at supporting those in need. 

The project, a far-reaching collaborative initiative with Lane Community College, Lane Education Service District (ESD), Lane Workforce Partnership, EveryOne Village, Square One Village and 15 school districts, will build 30 pallet shelters during the school year to be placed in villages across the county. Students across south Lane County, in Creswell, Springfield and Cottage Grove are participating . . .
