Homelessness: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
With homelessness increasing nationwide, John Oliver takes a look at the way we discuss the unhoused, what policy failures are making the problem worse, and how we can help.
Panel on Practical Steps to Address our City's Homeless Crisis
Homelessness is arguably the greatest humanitarian and societal emergency facing Portland. As the number of unhoused grows each year, it can feel overwhelming. But there are civic groups who are effectively tackling this problem–and who can help us carve a path forward. On Wednesday, September 22, 2021, SothWest Hills Residential League (SWHRL) held a conversation with leaders of four volunteer organizations who are taking practical steps to address our city’s homeless crisis.
*Alan Evans, formerly homeless founder and CEO of Helping Hands and Bybee Lakes Hope Center, serving homeless people who are ready to make sustainable changes to improve their lives
*Kiley Yuthas, outreach manager for Transition Projects, a leader in transitioning people from living on the streets into housing
*Laura Golino de Lovato, executive director of Northwest Pilot Project, providing housing assistance, transportation, and advocacy to low-income seniors in Multnomah County
*Toni Wallick, of Home Share Oregon, an innovative program that matches homeowners with spare room with those who are in need of housing

JustUs is the story of a family in the Española Valley of New Mexico ministering to their community during an epidemic of heroin addiction and political corruption. This location is the homeland of a variety of Indigenous tribes. In 1598 Spanish Conquistadores attempted to colonize this area. The Pueblo rebellion of 1680 was a reaction to enslavement that resonates with historical traumas that even remain today. Most of the people here are bi-racial. The Spanish language is a dominant cultural influence. Though the land is enchanting, poverty is endemic and the State of New Mexico is ranked 49th in educational achievement. Job training facilities and job opportunities are nearly nonexistent with the distribution of heroin and methamphetamine being the primary source of income. Produced by Paul Steinbroner and David Okimoto and directed by Paul Steinbroner of Touchpoint Productions, firstname.lastname@example.org at (541) 941-5317 to schedule a preview.

The journey as it is known is the spiritual work Native peoples use to transform painful experiences into meaning and purpose. It takes courage to show up for one’s life and respect.
Since 1989 the NW Coastal Indians have participated in a Canoe Journey to villages on the ancestral highways of the Salish Sea. The commitment to be a part of this means joining a canoe family that excludes members from alcohol or drug use. This is a spiritual commitment and people who are in recovery are urged to join as it brings healing to themselves, their family, and the tribe.
