quarterly outcome Reports
The investments in A Home for Everyone, and the creation of a City of Portland/Multnomah County Joint Office of Homeless Services, have made a difference for thousands of people who might otherwise be experiencing homelessness.
In the 2016-17 fiscal year, for the second year in a row, partners in A Home for Everyone helped record numbers of neighbors back into housing, find a safer night of sleep or keep from becoming homeless at all.
Nearly 4,900 people obtained housing -- hundreds more than the goals partners in A Home for Everyone set before the year began. That number is also 65 percent higher than the 2,967 people placed into housing the year before A Home for Everyone launched.
In addition, 6,139 people started receiving prevention services last year, almost 2,000 more than the year before and more than 1,000 people beyond what was expected.
And 8,532 people accessed emergency shelter in fiscal year 2017, almost 2,000 more people than the record number helped the year before. Three years ago, that number was just more than 4,000 people.
