We are the safety net

April 17, 2013

Last year, our community partners fought to save safety net services during a difficult budget year.

This year, the community is rallying again in the face of a $22 million budget shortfall.  The "We Are the Safety Net" campaign supports the Portland Housing Bureau's 13-14 budget requests, which will support needed programs and services for some of our community's most vulnerable.
