I'm homeless.

If you are homeless, or are at imminent risk of becoming homeless, call our Community Connect line at 503-640-3263. You will speak to a staff member who will screen your situation. If you are eligible, we will schedule an "assessment appointment" for you to meet with a Community Resource Advocate. This person will assess your situation and help determine if services in Washington County are available to help you.
