We are well aware of Portland’s homeless situation, but do you know of the homeless crisis we are experiencing right here in Beaverton? During the 2018-19 school year, 2473 children in the Beaverton School District experienced homelessness - the highest number of any school district in the state of Oregon.
When people think of homelessness, they don’t think of families. But 1/3 of all those without homes are parents with children.
Family Promise of Beaverton will...
· Provide transitional housing as a step to long-term stable housing for families
· Work with families to create a plan to overcome barriers that have prevented them from sustainable housing in the past
· Teach skills that help families maintain housing long term and strengthen our community
· Help families find stable housing
