Halfway Towards Ending Homelessness in Portland
"The Ten Year Plan has housed more than 2000 chronically homeless people like Steve Powell in the last four and a half years.
Powell might still be homeless if not for one of the priorities of the Ten Year Plan: permanent, subsidized shelter.
But building those places is expensive and complicated."
Though some officials see room for improvement, they're likely going to keep the plan as-is for the remaining five years of its run. Whether or not homelessness is completely eradicated by 2014 remains to be seen.
