Not 'Sleeping' on homeless issue

            May 28, 2018        Blair Stenvick/Tigard Tualatin Times

Family Promise of Tualatin Valley held its first annual "Drive In, Sleep Out" fundraiser last weekend in the Tigard High School parking lot.

The organization formed in late 2016, with the purpose of providing temporary housing for homeless families in the Tigard-Tualatin, Sherwood and Lake Oswego School Districts. It will do so by teaming up with at least 13 "hosts" — mainly churches or other private organizations — who can house families for a week at a time, four times a year.

A 'Promise' to help homeless students

May 5, 2018          Blair Stenvick/Tigard Tualatin Times

More than 300 students in the Tigard-Tualatin, Sherwood and Lake Oswego school districts didn't have a consistent home last school year, according to the Oregon Department of Education. Now, a new local arm of a national nonprofit is aiming to help those students and families.

Family Promise of Tualatin Valley formed in late 2016, with the purpose of providing temporary housing for homeless families in those three school districts. The organization will do so by teaming up with at least 13 "hosts" — mainly churches or other private organizations — who can house families for a week at a time, four times per year.

Family Promise of Tualatin Valley Fundraiser to Benefit Homeless Families

May 3, 2018          Tamra Kehoe/Tigard Tualatin Life

Homelessness has no boundaries and the Tualatin, Tigard, Sherwood and Lake Oswego areas are no exception. Last year alone, these communities had more than 300 school-aged children who experienced homelessness. This means no permanent place to stay. Some families may find temporary places to sleep with extended family, friends, on couches or the floor. Many find themselves sleeping in cars or without shelter at all.

“Too many children in our community are living with the stress of not knowing where they’ll sleep each night. Family Promise of Tualatin Valley will give these kids and their  families an option for temporary housing with additional programs to help them remove barriers that led to their housing instability,” said Rose Money, Chairperson of the Family Promise of Tualatin Valley.
