Club Meeting - Skoolies—a conversion story @ EcoTrust Building | Portland | Oregon | United States

Program: Skoolies—a conversion story

Speaker: Julie Atkins, Journalist/Founder Vehicles for Changes

A local non-profit is working to end homelessness one school bus at a time. ‘Forever Homes, Vehicles for Change’ is renovating retired buses into fully functioning houses on wheels.

“Every time I think about the bus, I just start smiling,” Founder and local homeless advocate Julie Akins said. “I just started trying to think of ways that I could help get kids under a roof, and honestly I had a dream about a bus, and I woke up the next day, and started researching, what I learned later is called a skoolie.”
