Community members,

We are pleased to provide a summary of the past week’s activity for the Streets Services Coordination Center, a collaborative team dedicated to streamlining services offered to those living outside and to expedite homelessness related cleanup efforts throughout Portland in a compassionate manner.

Our team is comprised of the Homelessness and Urban Camping Impact Reduction Program, Fire & Rescue, police, transportation, parks and recreation, and Multnomah County. Together we’ve taken a collective approach to remove campsites that pose the highest risk to health and safety. We coordinate our work, share information and resources, and communicate with one another on a daily basis.

Thanks to the Joint Office of Homeless Services, the Streets Services Coordination Center has designated shelter beds available to those impacted by campsite removals. We also provide transportation to shelters.
