Your Invited to Join Us in Celebration of Right 2 Dream Too success of the last year. Hundreds of people sleep on the streets of Portland every night, there are often no beds available at shelters, and it can take months or even years to get into transitional or permanent affordable housing. In response, Right 2 Survive organized a safe place where people can sleep undisturbed for a period of 8-12 hours, or stay longer as a community member while they work to access housing, health care, employment opportunities, and advocate for other houseless people. This place is Right 2 Dream Too (R2DToo) and was opened on October 10th, 2011. Over the past two years, over 70 people have found jobs and housing with the support of R2DToo. Many others have recovered from addictions, and learned valuable skills while volunteering with us. Now we are reaching out to ask for you to join us in Celebrating the success of the last year. On October 12th, we will be celebrating our two year anniversary. This family friendly event will feature carnival games, local musicians, and a silent auction. We are looking for donations for our silent auction, as well as smaller prizes for the carnival games. We will thank your business on our website and at the event itself. When: October 12, 2013 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Where: Right 2 Dream too $5 dollar donation. No one turned away for lack of funds. http://www.facebook.com/events/653093108056039/
