Throughout 2019, the Here Together coalition convened elected officials and housing and service providers throughout the region to identify a regional approach with a new funding stream to address homelessness through permanent supportive housing.
As a result of Here Together’s work, Metro is considering referring a funding measure to the May ballot that would fund services, such as rent assistance and mental health and addiction services, across our region’s three counties. As part of this effort, Metro will be hosting a series of community dialogues in each county.
The wheelchair-accessible event in Clackamas County will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. Feb. 11 at Willamette View -- Terrace Building, located at 13169 SE River Road in Milwaukie.
Please join Clackamas County Chair Jim Bernard, Metro Council President Lynn Peterson, and Metro Councilor Christine Lewis in Clackamas County to learn about this proposal and, most importantly, provide your feedback to help guide Metro’s decision-making.
