Throughout 2019, the HereTogether 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 HereTogether’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.
Please join Washington County Chair Kathryn Harrington, Metro Council President Lynn Peterson, Metro Councilor Craig Dirksen and Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle in Washington County to learn about the proposal and, most importantly, provide your feedback through facilitated group dialogue.
Spanish Language Interpretation services will be available.
