Village Voices: Tim Stay – CEO of The Other Side Village
Contact Name: Juliette Saravia

Tim Stay will discuss the design of the homes at the Village, the amenities they’ll have, and how all of that plays into the larger Village community and culture. We believe that our Village philosophy must be present in everything we do, including our physical construction – Tim will explain what that means.
As we contemplated the design of the homes for the Village, a guiding principle has been to build them in a way that any of us would be willing to live there. We have seen projects where shelters were built out of tough sheds with no amenities. We have felt that the home needs to be a place where one can live and prosper and thrive for the rest of their lives if they so desire.
We’ll also be joined by Russell Pearson, a graduate of The Other Side Academy who was recently hired as the first Village Coach. Russell will discuss his lived experience with coming off of the streets, the pain that comes with many adjustments, and why having a real home makes this process so much easier.
We’ll also share an update about the Village and the exciting new developments happening with the Welcome Neighborhood!
