Be my friend in Cite Soleil!
Type: Ask for support

What we'll do
I’ve had a hard life here in the slum of Cite Soleil, but for the most part I can take care of myself. What I want is a friend — someone who cares about my real situation and wants to learn and exchange letters and videos! I could also use some help in some other areas – Look at the other Invitations on my profile page for that.

Install a water purification system in Cite Soleil
Type: Ask for help

What we'll do
The neighborhood of Fequier in Cite Soleil has poor access to safe water. We would like to install a bio-sand filter provided by the organization Clean Water for Haiti.
 
 
Details
The 100 inhabitants of Fequier have to walk a mile to get water from a private company and then typically carries it back in containers on their heads. They must pay about 5 cents for each bucket.

Experience life in a homeless camp for one or two hours
Type: Offer something


What we'll do
We'll visit the homeless camp downtown near the riverfront. Several long time residents there have agreed to share their experiences there and show us what life is really like for them. Reading about the issue or passing it on the street is one thing. Hearing it directly from the source is something else.

We’ll discuss what happens when Salem conduct their routine sweep or purges. Shopping carts, sleeping bags and tents are lost, and they are back to square one. And we’ll have time anything else residents would like to say or you would like to know.

The average person doesn’t understand what it is really like to live in a homeless camp. See the reality of it!

Understand something about actual Seattle prisons

What we'll do
This month I'd like to focus on Seattle prisons. The prison mass incarceration is awfully big in Salem, with thousand of prisoners and thousands of support staff.

I'd like to suggest that you begin very simply by going to http://visionarysociety.org/type/prison/salem, selecting one local prison, and adding yourself as a 'stakeholder.'

There will be a number...

Clean back country land with help of homeless people
Type: Create something new

What we'll do
As a person who regularly uses Salem’s off-road trails, I envision a program that would rid Oregon’s sensitive back country land of garbage, while creating jobs that are filled in part by people who have been homeless.
 
 
Details
"Advent of the Wilderness Technician"
The Coordinator should contact private and government agencies to develop revenue streams that can cover the cost of operation. This includes two full-time salaried positions, and the position of the coordinator, who works with various officials to develop and implement strategies necessary to launch and maintain program. In addition, the program requires the use of a small pickup truck and trailer, and the quad vehicles which will be used in the performance of duties. The coordinator targets areas of garbage accumulation and directs crews to areas needing work.
