Branded graphic saying "Streets to Stability - Stories Worth Sharing"
The City of Portland Shelter Services blog is a space to share stories from our program.

Welcome to our new Streets to Stability blog where you’ll find compelling stories of current and former shelter guests, highlights about our site providers and community events with our partners, as well as insightful articles breaking down complex homeless services topics. While our program is data-driven, focusing on metrics and outcomes to improve our operations, it is the unique and deeply personal journeys of the individuals our shelters serve that truly define our success. Every data point represents the varied, complex backgrounds of people whose stories are often filled with trauma, disappointments, and setbacks, but also resilience, hope, and transformation.
