Statement from Human Solutions!

You may have heard that the family shelter run by Human Solutions across the street from Rosewood closed a couple of weeks ago, or seen the OPB story that came out this week drawing attention to some of the challenges that the shelter faced while they were operating. As neighbors and partners, we have worked with Human Solutions to support the hundreds of homeless families they serve, because those families are our neighbors. More than anything, this situation highlights the entrenched and growing problem of poverty and inequity in the Portland region. Human Solutions is one of many great organizations that we work with that help families in crisis. We hope that this news will result in more action, more collaboration and more support for Human Solutions and other organizations that are working together to help families.
