We Can Prevent & End Homelessness
Making Homelessness a Rare & Brief Experience
The Joint Office works to address the homelessness crisis in Multnomah County. We work with community-based organizations and government agencies to provide coordinated, participant-driven and equity-based services for those experiencing at risk of homelessness.
We recognize the co-occurring crises that people living unhoused face, including living with medical conditions and disabilities, behavioral health issues and substance use disorders. That is why we engage each person experiencing homelessness using a multi-faceted and holistic approach.
