Outreach workers with at least half-a-dozen social service groups worked with people at the Occupy Portland campsite over the past two days, in advance the deadline to clear the camp.
Central City Concern, Janus Youth Programs, and Cascadia were just a few of the groups with a presence in the two parks containing the campsite.
Commissioner Nick Fish, who oversees the city's housing bureau couldn't say for sure on Saturday how many people might still need shelter, but hoped to have figures early this week. He said additional shelter beds would be available later this month.
Officials did not expect to have enough shelter beds to accommodate everyone at the camp. Much hope was pinned on Bud Clark Commons, the region's new transitional center, to absorb some people in need. The facility is opening seventy additional beds on Tuesday.
