A little about the organization:
On any given night in the Portland-Vancouver metro area, well over 2,500 families (including about 4,000 children) are homeless. The personal and societal costs of homelessness are extreme. The stresses of homelessness can push parents and kids into self-destructive behavior and a cycle of decline. Foster care, jail, and emergency room care are frequently the costly results.
B2H represents a commitment to achieve significant individual, family and system outcomes through a realignment of the homeless family housing and service system in the four-county metropolitan area: Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties in Oregon and Clark County in Washington State. Governments and service providers have joined together, along with cities and housing authorities in the four-county region, to jointly develop B2H. This is a significant step forward in terms of coordination, building a regional framework, and a commitment to best practices.
