ACTION: Supporting Homeless Services

Last week, faith-community members gathered to testify before City Hall, asking our commissioners to support a budget that prioritizes truly affordable housing and the support and wrap-around services that help our unhoused neighbors, family members and friends get and stay permanently housed. Members of our congregation submitted testimony on behalf of this shared action with the Leaven Land & Housing Coalition. Below is the testimony of Vivian Childs, followed by the letter from Sarah Loose of the Coalition.

ACTION: Support Joint Office of Homeless Services Budget

Leaven Community Land & Housing Coalition is mobilizing, alongside our partners at HereTogether, to make sure that both the Portland City Council and Multnomah County Commission jointly fund the Joint Office of Homeless Services and pass a budget that invests in the near term and permanent solutions needed to tackle our homeless crisis. 

All are invited

All who hunger and thirst for God are welcome here. That means all.
