Re: “Portland is Finalizing a Deal to Use Tourism Dollars to Battle Homelessness.

Oh and how about the marijuana industry pitching in?

In Portland, 3 million of 3.5 million in private funds were raised in a public-private venture to open the Harbor of Hope homeless navigation center. By one person....the CEO of Columbia Sportswear. REI has a huge building here. There are many large companies here that have real reasons to pitch in. It makes me think of the 9.6 million dollar private-public partnership that resulted in the Bend Whitewater Park. Or how the Bethlehem inn got a lot of funding by a competitive fundraising campaign between the builders and real estate groups of bend going towards the BI renovations.

There are not community solutions being generally presented. It isnt about homelessness being solvable, it's about it being profitable. Similiar to the prison industrial complex. Grasping attachments to a short sighted dream of profits, seduced by furtherly selfish and morally ambiguous special interests.

Again, thank you.

Whoever wrote this, I LOVE YOU. Seriously, this is everything that I have wanted to scream at this city for years. This is by far the most critical homeless article from a local source that I have read in over a year. As someone who has spent many nights outside in snow in this city....Thank you.
