POTSDAM -- Peak Moment TV, aired on WCKN-TV, Time Warner channel 30, host Janaia Donaldson visits with ten-year old, Dignity Village, an intentional community of about 60 homeless people on Jan. 20-21 at 7 p.m.

The village sits on the tarmac of a Portland city-owned lot located near the Columbia River in a mixed industrial and open space region. Tour guide and outreach coordinator Jon Hawkes highlights this community’s generosity to the larger community: its residents well understand what homeless people need.

There’s a big greenhouse, showers, portable toilets, community kitchen, large community building (one of only two that have electricity), entry/guard house, container gardens, and a thrift shop.

Any person, not just community members, can use the facilities during their open hours, all built with ingenuity on a city-owned site. Peak Moment TV programs are available at in both video and audio format.

More than 80 Peak Moment TV shows are available on DVDs which can be borrowed from the Potsdam Public Library, 2 Park St.
