http://www.statesmanjournal.com

The program teaches residents how to manage money and offers a grant program that matches their savings three to one to buy a home. The family of six struggled to set aside enough money until they signed up for the program last year.

We were inspired to attend Nan Roman's talk on ending homelessness at City Club of Portland's forum last Friday. Ms. Roman's message: rapid rehousing assistance (for families and others with short-term economic homelessness) and supportive housing (for folks with disabilities and chronic issues) are cost-effective strategies that work. We already have local capacity and expertise to do both, but we need leadership and coordination to increase our collective efforts. Plus, we need more affordable housing!

Thank you to Commissioner Amanda Fritz, Nick Sauvie of ROSE Community Development, Mary Schoen-Clark and Harvey Rice of Sabin CDC, Steve Messinetti of Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East and Diane Linn of Proud Ground for joining us and to Street Roots for excellent #MyHomePDX tweeting!
