General Assistance Program Forum is December 8th in PCC Auditorium
Stakeholders and community partners are invited to attend a General Assistance Program Forum to join the discussion about a new program available to people with severe disabilities who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, and who are not yet receiving Social Security disability benefits. A forum is scheduled on December 8 from 9 to 11 a.m. in PCC’s auditorium at 5600 N.E. 42nd Avenue.
The General Assistance program will serve a group of people who can very easily slip through the cracks when it comes to accessing services – people with severe disabilities who are homeless (or at risk of being homeless) who have not yet started to receive Social Security benefits.
The forum is hosted jointly by the Department of Human Services Aging and People with Disabilities Program and Multnomah County Aging, Disability, and Veterans’Services.
This program provides housing assistance, utility assistance, cash assistance, and professional assistance with the Social Security application and appeals process. To RSVP, or to learn more about the General Assistance program and the referral process, please contact Program Manager Marcy Mee at (503) 373-0775, or by email at Marcy.S.Mee@state.or.us.
