Providing services where they are needed
With an Emergency Declaration in early March 2022, this location on private property was added to the list of future Safe Rest Villages. Our system of SRVs is intentionally spread around Portland, to bring the services needed to where people are.
“As the State Representative for HD33 and a neighbor in NW Portland, I am grateful to see the announcement of additional locations for Safe Rest Villages in our city,” said Representative Maxine Dexter. “It is critical we continue to work together across the community and all levels of government to have a robust, effective, compassionate, and coordinated response to homelessness. I welcome the site which will provide shelter and services to our houseless neighbors in House District 33 along NW Naito Parkway. Helping people get connected to critical support services and into safe and stable shelter is a critical step on the path out of homelessness.”
Commissioner Dan Ryan, County Commissioner Sharon Meieran, and the SRV team attended a Pearl District Neighborhood meeting recently to share the deatails about the future village and answer questions.
Our team has begun working with the community since this site's announcement. We have met with the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA), and are establishing our stakeholder group.
