New village in Bend aims to provide shelter, aid to homeless people


St. Vincent de Paul in Bend is transforming an empty lot behind its food bank on Third Street into a 10-unit village for homeless people in need of a temporary shelter. Each unit will be about 100 square feet with a window, bed, small table and chair, but the structures will offer homeless people a stable location, said Gary Hewitt, Bend’s St. Vincent de Paul manager.
