SHS Background Information

Thanks to voters, Metro is now working with MultnomahClackamas, and Washington counties to reduce homelessness through services that help people find and keep safe and stable homes. These include:

  • Emergency services such as outreach and shelter
  • Placement into housing and help paying rent
  • Advocacy and case management
  • Services in the areas of mental health, physical health, language and culture needs, education, employment, addiction and recovery, tenant rights and others.

The program also strengthens and expands the systems that deliver these services.
