About the Event
(Hybrid) How can we respond to Portland’s houseless crisis? Trinity’s newly formed houselessness task force is considering how we might partner with organizations that are pursuing effective solutions.
In this four-part series, we'll hear from people who are or have been houseless and from those who are responding to the challenges they face. Join the conversation in person or on Zoom as we begin to discern what Trinity’s response could—and should—be as we seek to live out our baptismal covenant, loving our neighbors as ourselves.
