Clean up the streets Portland; realize this is the one town in the northwest where homeless don’t have a mat or place to go at night. The money, resources, and space is already there, they are just not being used. Real giving takes a little time and effort. Write a letter, make a call, or ask a question if and when you donate. You don’t have to pass all these folks hanging out on the streets everywhere downtown and it may even equate to less crime. It’s also something that would work out great for them too I’m sure.

do notice how they are a dirtier bunch up here because they don't have a place to put their bag, shower, and sleep and go do something productive during the day (in fact this town attracts the nonproductive ones) like i dunno work maybe? believe it or not many people live in shelters and work and you wouldn't know it because they don't look like the crowd you see on the streets here. and they get out and on their feet.

I see and talk to em all the time- they tell me how hard it sucks out here and all i can think about is what bullshit it is that there are multiple organizations receiving millions in donations with huge buildings in downtown Portland yet this remains the one town in the northwest where they’ve got them living on the sidewalk. Thats what happens when we give blindly; middle men profit and no one gets helped.

…..And in case your wondering, no. no one has yet to give a damn, they instead are shutting down tent city- the only thing left this time of year… thanks commissioner dan saltzman.

Homeless is a problem almost everywhere. Maybe Bernanke should print up money for homeless shelters rather than Wall Street?

what did the homeless ever do to you? what a sad bitter person you must be if you cant find anything better to do with your time on this planet but cry about homeless people, I'm guessing you're one of those people who think all the problems in the world would be solved if everybody just adhered to your ideas and opinions

Many homeless had full time jobs and paid taxes,
I think they do deserve help much more than many
foreign countries around the world whose people
hate Americans even after all the help they got from
the hard working American folk!
