Online Forum Discussion: Portland Alternative Shelter & Housing

March 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $50

How can Portland quickly provide safe, private shelter or housing to all unsheltered residents?

Please join PDX Shelter Forum to explore and suggest bold, varied, and practical ideas for new shelter options in Portland at an open online community forum.

“In early February, the city/county Joint Office of Homeless Services issued an official RFI (Request for Information) regarding potential Safe Park sites and on February 17 an RFPQ (Request For Programmatic Qualifications) on alternative shelter proposals. Responses are due Tuesday, March 9th, by 4 pm.

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

Confirmed guest speakers/panelists:
  • General Jeff, LA Skid Row Neighborhood Council
  • Dr. Sharon Meieran, Multnomah County Commission for District 1.
  • Victory LaFara, MSW. (they, them, theirs) – C3PO Program Coordinator & Dignity Village Program Specialist, JOIN.
