From Oregon City to North Portland.
Stolen cars and tent cities line the road. Disagreement over which agency owns the land is just one of the issues that have led to neglect of the area.
It can happen to anyone, anywhere — from Hillsboro to Gresham, from Oregon City to North Portland. An adult or child living without a reliable place to sleep at night is at higher risk of health problems, violence, and death. It tears at the fabric of our community and doesn’t reflect who we are as Oregonians. The regional homeless services measure passed in May 2020 will ensure a dedicated revenue stream to address homelessness in our region at the scale needed for the next ten years.
