Kenny LaPoint :: What is Icon City?

  • “Icon City is a local nonprofit organization,” explains Kenny LaPoint, Housing and Resident Services Director at Housing Works in Central Oregon. Icon City began by asking homeless people directly what they needed, and uncovered serious, basic, and unmet needs – like taking showers. The first service was a shower truck, but more features and events were added later. “It’s really difficult to go and try to find a job when you aren’t clean.”
