Approximately 1,668 individuals sleep unsheltered in the City of Portland each night. Portland Shelter capacity is not enough to meet this need. The City's programs under the State of Emergency in Housing and Homelessness seek to manage public space issues until the City, County and State reach long-term solutions, including more funding for housing and mental health treatment. The goal of these programs is to create safer, more comfortable public spaces for all Portlanders.

One designated place to make complaints about camping, designed to provide more rapid, streamlined responses.
Camping outside of a City-sanctioned campground is not permitted. Each week, the Homelessness and Urban Camping Impact Reduction Program posts areas that they clean based off of reports received by community members. To report a campsite, please use the campsite reporting form and the City will review the report and dispatch services accordingly.
