Episode Description

Welcome to Out of the Streets of Portland, a podcast focused on sharing the stories of people who are currently or formerly homeless in our community, and helping navigate the systems and services that the Joint Office of Homeless Services and its partners either have in place, or are developing, to help people move out of homelessness and back into stable, supportive housing.

On this episode of Out of the Streets of Portland, we bring you a panel discussion at Southeast Uplift, which is a coalition of southeast Portland neighborhood associations. The panel features people involved in creating micro-villages in neighborhoods in northeast and southeast Portland.

A recent study by the Homelessness Research and Action Center at Portland State University on Alternative Shelters found that alternative, village-style shelters provide better outcomes for people experiencing homelessness than traditional, congregate shelters.

More information on alternative shelters supported by the Joint Office of Homeless Services can be found on the JOHS website.

This podcast is produced by the Joint Office of Homeless Services, a Multnomah County department with funding from the County, the City of Portland, Metro, and the state and federal governments to house, shelter, and provide street outreach, navigation, employment assistance, assistance obtaining social security income, and case management to people experiencing homelessness in our community.
