Public officials, funders and SVdP volunteers braved the construction landscape to celebrate the start of Alona Place, long-awaited affordable housing for Junction City.

Oakridge MHP: Turning The Corner

Community Caring Day: Sept. 12, 9-5 at 47775 Berry, Oakridge.

The Oakridge Mobile Home Park occupies the heart of Oakridge geographically and emotionally. Prior to its purchase by St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County, Inc. and subsequent cleanup by the community, the OMHP was the scene of half the town’s crime. Squatters lived in the bushes and in abandoned units, and the place was overgrown with blackberries and ivy, and choked by garbage. Medical personnel would not respond there without police backup. There was no security, no management, no oversight.
