Re: Article: Los Angeles Just Opened a Tiny Home Village to House the Homeless

Hi,
I suspect the creators of this lash up, consider it transitional housing  (housing first).  Keeping with that myth, it would not matter how it was laid out trees or no really in my opinion, if someone is to stay here two weeks on their way to their own nice cottage, with a bit of a yard.

Given prevailing reality,  with nothing for most to transition to, we in my opinion will need way more than a few trees and a fixed layout, for me to be anything but sickened from seeing this.

Where i live, the homeless often call this prison lite, and i feel the same way. 

People with no home, do use jail to get a few warm nights rest, and a bit of medial care, often they know the right laws to brake to get in for just a few days.  That is what this could be useful for.

I presume the people who created this mean well,  if so thank you for that!
Lets do this for people in need ( and all who so wish) in a kind, comprenhisive,  and uplifting way, intouch with the reality that there is nothing to transition to for most, and done well, why would one want to.
Cheers,

Jayme Delson

Metro Garage Severe Weather Shelter

Tim & PDX Shelter Forum – Good Morning.

 

I hope you are warm and well.

 

I was fortunate to volunteer during last week’s severe weather shelter at the Metro building parking structure that was managed by Multnomah County and JOHS. Here is a post with photos and the experience, Metro Garage Severe Winter Shelter .

 

Our efforts are being noticed by the city and county. Great job to everyone.

 

Looking forward to our next discussion.

 

Keith

March 1, forum #4, Alternative Shelter proposals now! rescheduled to 3/1, with more speakers!

Tim McCormick
 

Forum #4: Alternative Shelter & Housing - Request for Public Involvement

 

This is truly shaping up to be an exciting, fun, and very timely event. Please join us Monday March 1, 10am-12pm PST, to explore and suggest bold, varied, and practical ideas for new shelter options in Portland, at an open, online, forum,. We will pose this question to live panelists, and ahead of time to the community to submit video responses: How can we quickly provide safe, private shelter or housing to all unsheltered residents?  

 

We will invite and discuss current and possible responses to the City/County's RFPQ (Request For Programmatic Qualifications, i.e. proposals) on "alternative shelter" that is due on March 9th. 

 

Confirmed guest speakers / panelists:

 

Register: http://register.pdxshelterforum.org.

More information - event page: http://forum4.pdxshelterforum.org.

 

 

 

In keeping with the goal of complementing official processes, and our general orientation, we seek to center and prioritize in this event the viewpoints of those closest to homelessness. Also, to particularly explore models of shelter/housing that are more self-determining and self-governing. 

 

We're excited to welcome as special guest speaker/panelist, General Jeff, Chair of Los Angeles Skid Row Neighborhood Council Formation Committee. Twitter: @GoSkidRowGo.

Jeff is a longtime community organizer in the houseless community of LA and the Skid Row area near downtown, "promoting the Skid Row resident's grass-roots Positive Movement!! (since 2006)". See more at: skidrowneighborhoodcouncil.com:

Also, Dr. Sharon Meieran, Multnomah County Commissioner for District 1. :

 

Also invited, may be on live panel or submit a video/written response:  

  • Dan Ryan, Portland City Councilmember, Commissioner of Housing Bureau and Bureau of Development Services, and city liaison to JOHS

  • Hazelnut Grove, C3PO Villages, and Dignity Village current residents

  • Joint Office of Homeless Services (JOHS) representatives 

  • and other officials and community leaders

Also, written or audio or video responses are invited from houseless and other community members, as an alternative way to participate. 

 

Registering and attending

We are investigating how to support captioning on the livestream, please let us know any suggestions. 

 

We also welcome comments, questions, proposals via all possible channels before and during the event -- Zoom chat, email, text, voicemail, Facebook comments on livestream, or adding to the public open event document notes. The event and chat channel will be recorded and made available after the event on our YouTube channel and our Facebook group.

Safety Off the Streets Workgroup is the shelter, immediate-response focused part, and advisory group, of the county homelessness administrative authority (A Home For Everyone). So it's a key place, in terms of funding / general policy, where many of us in PDX Shelter Forum might engage given our interests here. See 'About SOS'' below for more about it. 

http://ahomeforeveryone.net/safety-off-the-streets-workgroup.
"In October 2014, the Safety off the Streets Workgroup was created as a subcommittee of the Coordinating Board and charged with developing an action plan, that prioritized strategies for increasing options for safety and a good night’s sleep, such that no women, children, or adults with disabilities have to sleep on the streets of Multnomah County by January 2017. The action plan includes policy and funding recommendations from the workgroup’s analysis of the need and what it would take to build a system to begin to address that need. [...]

"Going forward, the Safety off the Streets Workgroup will oversee implementation of shelter development, coordinated entry, best practices strategy, monitor new shelter initiatives, develop public spaces engagement/management strategies, oversee severe weather response, oversee development and implementation of street and shelter count methodology, and shape safety off the streets related budget recommendations."

Great article, Mary. Especially like the quote:

“The one thing we all agreed on was that the enemy was not the city but poverty and racism and homelessness.”

 

So important to stay focused on the mission and values.

We've RESCHEDULED Forum #4 from Tues --> Monday, March 1, 10am-12pm

We apologize to those who registered for Tuesday or donated or sponsored; we hope you can come on March 1, but of course you are free to request a full refund any payment, there should be a link to do so on your confirmation email, or if not go to register.pdxshelterforum.org. Please email us if you have any difficulty with this. 

But right now, PLEASE everyone be safe, take care of yourself and check on and look out for your neighbors and acquaintances. Here are some pointers for getting and offering help: 

Donations & Volunteering - Multnomah County - daily updated resource page

Street Roots vendor actions 

"This weekend StreetRoots vendors are supporting other unhoused people by delivering emergency supplies, and you can have their backs by getting them emergency $. Thank you! And if you need emergency shelter or see someone who does, #211 can arrange rides.

"Our ambassadors (former/current SR vendors) set up hospitality warming spaces in our parking strip with propane heaters and coffee. At Street Roots' office in Old Town:   
 
"Many of Portland's homeless rely on income from Street Roots newspaper sales, and they are now are losing most of their sales and income. "Help us help them by giving a gift to our vendor assistance fund. Our goal is to raise $10,000 over this weekend to distribute next week." Go to: https://secure.qgiv.com/for/vif

St-Johns-Village_AHFE-rendering_2020-09-03_1.jpg
(above: artist depiction of St Johns Village, Portland). 

This past week, the city/county Joint Office of Homeless Services issued an official RFI (Request for Information) regarding potential Safe Park sites and an RFPQ (Request For Programmatic Qualifications) on alternative shelter proposals. Both of these calls were actually withdrawn, in order to be reissued with new timeframes and details, but we expect to see them soon, with RFPQ responses due perhaps in March. 

While the core question noted above has been a key focal question for PDX Shelter Forum / Shelter Now coalition since the start, this Forum asks the question specifically to engage with recent calls for proposals issued by City of Portland / Multnomah County, and current debates about the future of Hazelnut Grove village.

In keeping with the goal of complementing official processes, and our general orientation, we seek to center and prioritize in this event the viewpoints of those closest to homelessness. Also, to particularly explore models of shelter/housing that are more self-determining and self-governing.

Hello all –

 

Hope you’re well! I’m happy to report that HB 2006, the Speaker’s emergency shelter siting bill, will be up for a public hearing in the House Housing Committee next Tuesday at 8:30am.

 

Many of you supported HB 4001 in the 2020 session, and would appreciate your testimony in support this year too. I’ve included instructions for signing up for testimony below.

 

There is one change I want to flag related to the logistics. The policy and funding pieces of the proposal have been drafted separately this session: the policy section is in HB 2006, the funding in HB 2004. You’ll notice they will be heard together in committee on Tuesday.

 

If you have any other questions, please let me know!

 

 

Public Testimony Options:
You may provide written or oral testimony at this meeting.

Written Testimony
Written testimony should be submitted via the Oregon Legislative Information System (OLIS) testimony portal. Testimony must be received within 24 hours after the start time of the meeting in which the public hearing is held.

Re: join us Tuesday for Forum #4: Alternative Shelter - Request for Public Involvement

Forum #4: Alternative Shelter RFPI - Request for Public Involvement

Please join us next Tuesday Feb 16th to explore and suggest bold, varied, and practical ideas for new  shelter options in Portland, at an open, online, community forum, 10am-12pm PST. We will pose this question to live panelists, and ahead of time to the community to submit video responses: How can we quickly provide safe, private shelter or housing to all unsheltered residents?  

Register: http://register.pdxshelterforum.org.
More information - event page: http://forum4.pdxshelterforum.org.

St-Johns-Village_AHFE-rendering_2020-09-03_1.jpg
(above: artist depiction of St Johns Village, Portland). 

This past week, the city/county Joint Office of Homeless Services issued an official RFI (Request for Information) regarding potential Safe Park sites and an RFPQ (Request For Programmatic Qualifications) on alternative shelter proposals. Both of these calls were actually withdrawn, in order to be reissued with new timeframes and details, but we expect to see them soon, with RFPQ responses due perhaps in March. 

While the core question noted above has been a key focal question for PDX Shelter Forum / Shelter Now coalition since the start, this Forum asks the question specifically to engage with recent calls for proposals issued by City of Portland / Multnomah County, and current debates about the future of Hazelnut Grove village.

In keeping with the goal of complementing official processes, and our general orientation, we seek to center and prioritize in this event the viewpoints of those closest to homelessness. Also, to particularly explore models of shelter/housing that are more self-determining and self-governing. 

We're excited to welcome as special guest speaker/panelist, General Jeff, lead organizer of Los Angeles Skid Row Neighborhood Council Formation Committee. Twitter: @GoSkidRowGo.
Jeff is longtime community organizer in the houseless community of LA and the Skid Row area near downtown, "promoting the Skid Row resident's grass-roots Positive Movement!! (since 2006)". See more at: skidrowneighborhoodcouncil.com:
General-Jeff.jpg
Also, tentatively confirmed: Dr. Sharon Meieran, Multnomah County Commissioner for District 1. (10:00-10:45am):
SharonMeieran_Headshot_Color.jpg

Also invited, may be on live panel or submit a video/written response:  
  • Dan Ryan, Portland City Councilmember, Commissioner of Housing Bureau and Bureau of Development Services, and city liaison to JOHS
  • Hazelnut Grove current residents
  • C3PO camp residents (Creating Conscious Communities for People Outside).
  • Joint Office of Homeless Services (JOHS) representatives 
  • and other officials and community leaders
Plus video responses from houseless and other community members. 

Registering and attending
We plan to do ticket registration on Eventbrite like last time, with tickets free or by optional donation, Zoom meeting access for up to 100 registrants, and with options to watch via livestream (YouTube and Facebook) with or without registering. If you'd just like to get the video recording later, or watch livestream, remember to select that option on the registration form so we can conserve our Zoom attendee slots. 

Event page
http://forum4.pdxshelterforum.org.
This is a central and steadily-updated page with all the event info, agenda, notes on how to register and/or watch livestream, how to submit questions or comments by various channels before or during the event, and also live notes.

Donation and sponsorship
The event is suggested donation - you are welcome even if you can't donate financially, but are also welcome to donate/sponsor (and be recognized for it live at the event, by your and/or organization's name, and on the archive video and permanent event/notes page, unless you tell us otherwise). This allows us to offer honoraria to panelists and respondents who may need or request them, and to be able to continue organizing these events.

Everyone welcomed by all means possible
We are seeking to be very flexible in how participants can engage in this event: from panelists engaging live with attendees in main Zoom space, to others submitting responses in advance to the key event questions to be played or read at event, to open publics who can watch via livestream on Facebook or on YouTube which offers closed captioning, rewindability, and immediately archived and shareable video. 

We also welcome comments, questions, proposals via all possible channels before and during the event -- Zoom chat, email, text, voicemail, Facebook comments on livestream, or adding to the public open event document notes.  The event and chat channel will be recorded and made available after the event on our YouTube channel and our Facebook group. After the event, a survey will be sent to all registrants and known attendees, on which you can provide anonymous and open feedback, which we welcome. After the event, a survey will be sent to all registrants and known attendees, on which you can provide anonymous and open feedback, which we welcome. 

Please share!
We encourage you to share this event announcement in your communities, and we particularly invite and urge you to invite all houseless neighbors and residents. Your/their presence, questions, and comments, spoken or written or video-recorded, will be prioritized at the event. You can find a link to post cards that you can print out and distribute on the event page. Share this email, and via social media with hashtag #pdxshelterforum.

We hope to see, hear, and connect with you Tuesday, and before and after, and we invite your brightest and best ideas, and support, for transforming the homelessness situation in Portland.

Tim McCormick - PDX Shelter Forum, HousingWiki, Village Collaborative
Sean Green - PDX Shelter Forum, Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, Shelter Now.
