VISIONS AND PLANS
Homelessness is personal for me.
On many levels.
If a person can have a safe, warm and dry place to sleep, to eat, to bathe, to live, they can start to rebuild their life.
Everyone has a different story, and housing, shelters and services need to be tailored to each individual.
Our homeless need a place that will give them dignity.
Housing the homeless begs for innovation, for solutions that will greatly increase the quantity of shelter beds and housing for our homeless and people in need.

It was 2009. The recession was brutal on me, I had lost almost everything. It was a time for reflection and reassessing what I wanted to do next. A friend lent me an office space on the West End of Portland. I walked out one morning and saw this man sleeping in the bushes next to the front door. I felt someone was telling me something...
