As reported by KOIN6 on March 16, 2016, “Portland recently got the green light to dedicate more funds to a program that would help relocate homeless people who can prove they have more stable housing options in another city.  Approximately 4,000 homeless people were counted in Portland as of January, and nearly half of them don’t have a place to sleep indoors.

The city knows it has a serious problem on its hands, and a number of ideas have been presented to help those without homes get some help. It’s the reason Portland has been given an extra $2.75 million for services even before the next budget is drafted. That includes $30,000 for the program Homeward Bound.”
