Police chiefs to address homeless issues as part of Tigard forum
Just Compassion, a coalition of religious, civic and business leaders whose goal is to help the homeless in the area, will host a forum Thursday morning with police chiefs or their representatives from the Beaverton, Lake Oswego, King City, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin and King City police departments.
The 7:30 a.m. meeting is set for Symposium Coffee, 12345 S.W. Main St., Tigard.
The topic will be how each city approaches homelessness and how Just Compassion can work with the agencies to help those who visit the Tigard Resource Center, 12280 S.W. Hall Blvd., a day shelter where those in need can look for jobs, access mental health services, and find clothing and food (although it is not a food pantry).
