The Portland region’s homeless crisis demands our attention. Lives are on the line – families, veterans, women escaping domestic violence, and people with chronic health conditions are among those experiencing homelessness. Many for the first time.
HereTogether is a coalition of service providers, business leaders, elected officials, and advocates who all believe homelessness in the Portland area is not an unsolvable problem. We believe a region-wide response that targets the roots of the problem, and for the first time matches the scale and scope to the crisis is how we get there.
There are proven ways to effectively solve homelessness. We just need the public will and a more effective way to come together. That’s what HereTogether is all about.
