Hi all!

CAHOOTS is well loved by those advocating for the rights of unhoused folks! I'm hopeful that Portland Street Response will prove quite effective and grow to replace unnecessary police involvement. 

I also wanted to note that Project Respond is an options for folks experiencing mental health issues. They are a program run by Cascadia Behavioral Health. Project Respond is reachable via the Multnomah County Crisis Line: 503-988-4888. They do some triaging and then will connect folks to PR if that seems like the appropriate next step. Project Respond does sometimes bring police, but only for situations in which someone is a danger to others. Police commonly call Project Respond in to assist/take over for them when they identify that the primary concern is mental health and not anything crime-related.

In a situation where police involvement is unavoidable, one can also advocate for the presence of an Enhanced Crisis Intervention Team "ECIT" officer. They have additional mental health training. 

One more thing! I'm a big proponent of folks going out to talk to people living outdoors about the conditions that commonly lead to sweeps. There is an opportunity to support via educations and a little elbow grease to decreasing a campsite's Risk Assessment Score, thus decreasing the likelihood of a person/group being removed from an area for cleaning. Last I heard, HUCIRP was using this basic criteria for removal with minimal exceptions. They have a rubric with which they determine which sites are of concern and which are priority. Community members can go out, share this info and help people reduce the risk of being moved! Would love to see more of this. 

Thanks for all of your dedication!

Friday Feb 26th, 12-1pm at City Club: Metro "State of the Region" w/Lynn Peterson

Tim McCormick
 

You can and please do send question beforehand to: questions@... or via Twitter @PDXCityClub (in a way better, because public and potentially seen by far more people, may be and in my experience often are retweeted by City Club, and the event hosts are more accountable to whether they voice the questions). 

Metro is the ultimate overseer of the Metro Supporting Housing Services tax measure passed last year, likely to be the dominant source of homelessness-related funding in this region in the next ten years. 

RSVP / more info / see live link: 
https://mailchi.mp/pdxcityclub/stateofregion.

PDX-City-Club_State-of-the-Possible_banner.jpg

State of the Region

Friday, February 26 – 12-1 p.m.

In 2020, Metro put forward bold proposals for regional approaches to houselessness and transportation. Voters approved the former and rejected the latter, so what does this tell us about the future of our region? Can Metro help us emerge stronger after COVID-19?

Join us to hear from Metro President Lynn Peterson. She'll give a presentation on Metro's role in our region's recovery and then participate in a conversation with Katrina Holland, the Executive Director of JOIN and a co-founder of Reimagine Oregon.

You can submit questions for President Peterson by emailing questions@... or via Twitter @PDXCityClub.

Creating A Place for All: A Conversation with Supervisor Rafael Mandelman on Safe Sleeping Sites
<Creating-A-Safe-Place-for-All-event_2021-02-24_Rafael-Mandelman.png>

About this event
The number of people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco has seen dramatic growth since the start of the pandemic. The shelter-in-place order, job loss, and the closing of shelters across the city have left many people with nowhere to go, but the sidewalk.

TogetherSF is hosting a conversation with San Francisco District 8 (Castro, Twin Peaks, Glen Park, Mission, Diamond Heights, Noe Valley) Supervisor Rafael Mandelman about his Place for All legislation. This legislation will create a network of temporary safe sleeping sites (designated sites for tents that are connected with City services) with the intent to accommodate all unhoused, unsheltered people. He will discuss how this strategy will open up more options for individuals experiencing homelessness and get them off the streets.

TogetherSF aims to provide everyone with access to the information, connections, and actions to make a difference in our city. That is why we're committed to learning more about street homelessness and what we all can do to support those experiencing homelessness. Join us Wednesday, February 24 from 7:00 - 8:00 pm.
