Right 2 Survive has set up a rest area for the homeless Right 2 Dream Too (R2D2) at the corner of NW 4th Avenue and West Burnside Street on the vacant lot next to the Chinatown gate. The site officially opened on Monday, October 10th, 2011, on National Homeless Day.[1][2] The organizers are extending an open invitation to the community to come down and celebrate National Homeless Day at their new camp.[3]

On January 11, 2012 Street Roots reported[4] that Right 2 Dream Too was denied a waiver from the city for its rest area for the homeless and now owes the city $641 for code violations.[5][6]
