  • A new report lays out a series of recommendations for how Portland’s first responders handle homelessness. The report, conducted by Portland State University’s Homelessness Research and Action Collaborative, is based on a survey of people who are homeless. Greg Townley, research director for the collaborative tell us about the report. We are also joined by Vince Masiello, a Street Roots vendor who helped conduct the survey.
