Thank you Oregon for donating 20,000 socks to remind state legislators about the 20,000 kids and tens-of-thousands of others who experienced homelessness last year.
Prevent and end homelessness with $20 million for the Emergency Housing Account (EHA) and State Homeless Assistance Program (SHAP).
Tens of thousands of Oregonians experienced homelessness last year - 20,000 of whom were kids. 853 of those kids lived in Salem, 1,291 in Beaverton, 1,200 in Medford and 302 in the counties of the north coast.
Home is where hope and growth take root. Homes improve health, increase safety, grow local economies, and help kids succeed in school. Simply put: it all starts at home.
