Oregon Harbor of Hope: A Community Partnership to Serve Chronically Homeless and Unsheltered People

September 14, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Free
The Oregon Harbor of Hope is a non-profit program aspiring to develop a multi-purpose service hub that helps unsheltered people and the chronically homeless return to healthy, productive lives in permanent housing. From 2014-2015, Oregon was one of three states in the US with a significant increases in chronic homelessness–an explosion of over 59%.

Why is this so high?

-Lack of affordable housing and laws regulating rent control or affordable housing development

-Extremely high population growth and increased housing costs

-Homeless shelters and sidewalk laws are a stopgap, not a solution

Portland has a great network of churches, community organizations and shelters that do their best to support the homeless but it’s not enough. What’s missing is long-term, transformational care with an integrated system of services for mental health, drug and alcohol addiction, domestic abuse, job training, healthcare and family services.

With your help, we want to build a facility to address these issues and give Portland the progressive, long-term solution to homelessness that it deserves.
