About the Safety off the Streets Workgroup

In October 2014, the Safety off the Streets Workgroup was created as a subcommittee of the Coordinating Board and charged with developing an action plan, that prioritized strategies for increasing options for safety and a good night’s sleep, such that no women, children, or adults with disabilities have to sleep on the streets of Multnomah County by January 2017. The action plan includes policy and funding recommendations from the workgroup’s analysis of the need and what it would take to build a system to begin to address that need.

The AHFE Action Plan Workgroups were reconvened in October 2015, as part of the Coordinating Board's outcome-based budgeting process to prioritize investment priorities from the AHFE Action Plan strategies for the next fiscal year. The Safety off the Streets workgroup presented their prioritized funding recommendations to the Coordinating Board in November 2015, which informed the recommendations presented to and accepted by the Executive Committee in December 2015.

Going forward, the Safety off the Streets Workgroup will oversee implementation of shelter development, coordinated entry, best practices strategy, monitor new shelter initiatives, develop public spaces engagement/management strategies, oversee severe weather response, oversee development and implementation of street and shelter count methodology, and shape safety off the streets related budget recommendations.
