The purpose of the Gresham Task Force on Homelessness will be to provide recommendations to the community on how to best address this growing issue. To accomplish this, the task force will assess the scope of the homeless problem in Gresham, identify potential solutions and best practices, and help define the City’s role in this issue. Applications to serve on this task force are now closed and appointments will be confirmed before Council on June 7.

The task force will meet approximately 4 months then will conclude their work culminating in a final report to City Council in October 2016.
