Community Input Requested on Shelter Proposal

The City of Portland, Catholic Charities and the Joint Office of Homeless Services are proposing to open a transitional village-style shelter consisting of micro-housing sleeping pods for up to 14 women in Kenton at 2221 N Argyle St next year.

As a result, members of the Office of Mayor Charlie Hales, Catholic Charities and the Joint Office of Homeless Services are scheduled to attend the KNA meeting tomorrow, December 14th, at the Historic Kenton Firehouse (8105 N Brandon Ave) at 7pm to engage in opening dialogue about the proposal with the neighborhood.

Although the KNA was originally notified of the proposal earlier in the month, the KNA has only today received requested written documentation, which is embedded below, on the proposition to send out to the neighborhood.

The KNA Chair believes this project will fail without neighborhood support.

Therefore, if you have any comments, concerns, etc. about this proposal, please try to attend tomorrow’s meeting. If you are unable to make it, please feel free to contact us, and we’ll do our best to make sure your voice is heard.
