Oregon Health Plan (OHP)
Living on the streets is tough – mentally, physically, and emotionally. To survive, those experiencing homelessness need access to basic services and safe spaces to be – both during the day and at night. Our Emergency Shelters seek to meet these needs. Please visit the TPI Day Center to sign up for access to one of these shelters.
A 100-bed emergency shelter for men, women, and couples open overnight in downtown Portland.
A 200-bed emergency shelter open 24/7 for men and women in NE Portland.
Safety off the Streets (SOS) Shelter
A 70-bed emergency shelter open nightly for women in NW Portland.
A 120-bed emergency shelter open 24/7 for women and couples in SE Portland.
Severe Weather Shelters (2)
Operated at the Day Center and at the Imago Dei Community in SE Portland. These emergency shelters open when the temperature drops to 25 degrees or lower. Together, these sites can accommodate up to 250 people with nowhere else to turn. These sites open on a walk-in basis, and their openings are announced publicly throughout town on nights when the weather triggers a “severe weather alert.”
SHORT TERM RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS
Our short term residential programs provide a safe, temporary home and support services for participants during their transition out of homelessness. Our goal is to help residents make this journey in the best, fastest way possible. The wait time to get into these programs is currently running close to 7 months – an all-time high.

Helping people secure – and retain – permanent housing is the ultimate goal of our work. We do this by placing people into rental apartments throughout the metro area, and by operating two apartment buildings for those escaping homelessness.
Barbara Maher Apartments (N Portland)
32-units of permanent supportive housing for women.
Clark Center Annex (SE Portland)
22-units of permanent supportive housing for men.
Scattered Site Placements
We provide short-and long-term support for participants to rent housing units throughout the metro area. During the past year alone, we helped more than 800 people secure housing. But our work doesn’t end there. To ensure that these placements are successful, we remain engaged, providing the follow up services critical to ensuring that, once housed, people stay housed.
On average, more than 80% of those we house remain housed a year after our financial assistance ends.
