Hundreds to be served in bold proposal to slash chronic homelessness by 20 percent in Catholic Charities, Archdiocese and Providence collaboration

Multnomah County’s most recent count of homeless citizens tallied 4,177 people; 4,177 men, women and children sleeping in tents, in cars, or on the sidewalk. Even worse, that figure was up 10 percent from the previous count two years earlier. A third of these individuals are chronically homeless and have been living on the street for more than a year.
