Any amount helps, and will be greatly appreciated.

Right 2 Dream Too is a Rest Area for Houseless People to get up to 12 hours of uninterupted sleep. We have 2 -12 hour shifts day and night running 24 hours, 7 days a week. Homeless helping homeless paid for by your donations and grants aquired by grassroots funders.
This is a way for people to insulate themselves from the the  criminalization of homelessness happening on the streets today having nowhere else to go. We have a capacity of 90 people per shift at a total of 180 a day, and so on, but there are a lot more out there.
Since the video above was done, our operational costs have increased, so this ask is for a 3 month period of keeping the doors open. We thank you forward for your contribution to help with these issues.
These type of Rest Areas are needed in other cities and towns as a preventitive measure to insure people aren’t criminalized for necessity of life issues. If you would like to have more information, or contact, go to: http://right2dreamtoo.blogspot.com/

    My wife and I came to Portland Oregon to change our lives….We are also homeles. Upon arriving to Portland with only $100 in our pocket we set out to discover what Portland has to offer as far as help and shelters. We quickly found that there are no resources for couples whatsoever. You either have to have a mental illness or be a drug addict to get any help. Well since we are not drug addicts and have no mental illneses we felt helpless. After sleeping unddr a store front the first night I knew we HAD to find a place…a place to sleep together. Our second day out here was a struggle. I had started handing out my resume to busines owners and had been hired by a local company and was to start work the following day. During all the stress and cinfusion we happened to walk by Right 2 Dream Too. The people we spoke with were nice and told me about how everything works and that they had a couples tent we could sleep in…Finally we had a place we could both sleep offf the streets and safe. Having a safe place to sleep at Right 2 Dream Too has allowed us to work and save money for our own place. As of today 2/12/2015 we have been there two weeks and are getteing the keys to our apartment tomorrow. All this because we were given a Right 2 dream too.
