Mayor Wheeler addresses homelessness

 
Portland,

Your voice is critical when it comes to shaping policies on how Portland can best alleviate the hardships of our neighbors experiencing homelessness in a compassionate way.

That’s why in February and March, I welcome you to join us for several Community Conversations that my office is organizing throughout Portland.

These conversations are a great opportunity for us to share how the City is addressing homelessness, and to listen to your priorities and ideas for improving our continued efforts as we make budget decisions to meet the magnitude of the problem.
