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. People who are chronically homeless often require significant assistance accessing support services, health care, and drug and alcohol addiction programs in order to succeed in permanent housing.
