I would like to commend you for starting a new series focused on solutions rather than on the overwheling problems we hear daily from mass media. Portland has a robust industry of affordable housing organizations who each day are working hard to help many families in need to have access and stay in decent and dignified housing built with public-private investments. At Hacienda CDC we use housing as a stabilizing platform from which our working class tenants can build their individual assets through education, skill building, culturally-specific supportive services that help them integrate into our society and feel welcome, productive members. The difficulty for us is to operate within the confines of limited resources available to serve an ever increasing number of persons facing dire economic adversities. The solutions to our problems are well known and proven organizations like your guests from Human Solutions provide strong evidence that efforts like these need to be supported and celebrated.
