Homelessness can be reduced–and Lane County has a plan to do it. by Pat Farr

The Poverty and Homelessness Board (PHB) provides advice to the Board of County Commissioners and the intergovernmental Human Services Commission with the goal of reducing and preventing poverty and homelessness in Lane County.

Operation 365 was part of the Poverty and Homelessness Board's strategy to reduce homelessness in Lane County.

Operation 365 was part of the Poverty and Homelessness Board’s strategy to reduce homelessness in Lane County.

It assists the development of the delivery of housing and services to meet the specific needs of people who are impoverished or homeless improving their stability. It assists to maximize the allocation of local, state and federal funds made available for this purpose. It serves as the administrative board for the Lane County Community Action Agency and as the oversight board for the Lane County Continuum of Care.

On Thursday August 25, 2016, PHB Chair Pat Walsh, PHB member Mayor Kitty Piercy,  PHB Staff Steve Manella and Pearl Wolfe joined me in a discussion with Register Guard Editorial Board Jack Wilson and Ilene Aleshire about the makeup and strategies of the PHB.  They published an article in Sunday August 28, 2016 Register-Guard:  “Intractable, but not impossible” which gives the reader good insights about the PHB strategic plan to reduce homelessness in Lane County.
