Housing and Shelters

On March 22, 2020, Governor Kate Brown "imposed a temporary moratorium on residential evictions for nonpayment, prohibiting law enforcement from serving, delivering, or acting on any notice, order or write of termination of tenancy, relating to residential evictions for nonpayment." Please see below for details and resources.

For more information or guidance on the eviction moratorium, any questions about housing security, or notices your landowner is posting please visit the Community Alliance of Tenants. Link below.

IMPORTANT: All homeless families should call 211 and ask about shelter and housing program openings. Also ask to be put on their FAMILY MOBILE HOUSING TEAM WAITLIST. Most of the area shelters and housing agencies are now using this waitlist when they have an opening. Be sure to tell them what your situation is (on street, in car, motel, doubled up. etc.) and about any family members with specific needs such as disabilities, illness, pregnancy, etc. Call back weekly to check on your status. You should also call the listings below for specifics about their programs and availability.

Rental Assistance

If you or someone you know needs assistance to pay rent, mortgage or utility bills, please call 2-1-1 or visit https://www.211info.org/. There are many programs available and 2-1-1 can provide information and referrals. You may also contact your school counselor or social worker if you need more information or resources.
