For individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Clackamas County
We are the central point for households experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis. Coordinated Housing Access (CHA) provides:
- A clearly defined process so people know how to access services
- A single number to request services, which means they will not need make numerous calls
- A standardized assessment, which gives us the ability to match individuals and families with housing and services based on their needs
- Centralized data about number of homeless individuals and families in our community, which can can help us influence changes to the system.
Call 503-655-8575 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and leave a message. Your call will be returned within 3 business days.
If you have any questions about the process, email Abby Ahern.
