Mayor Beaty Assisting Residents Experiencing Homelessness

Idea Category: Housing

Mayor of Beaverton, Oregon Lacey Beaty successfully lobbied for federal and state funds to better assist Beaverton’s residents experiencing homelessness. In November, she was able to begin building the city’s first emergency homeless shelter at no cost to residents. “I truly believe government is its own worst enemy sometimes,” she says, “because we try to solve such big issues that we miss opportunities to take meaningful first steps. This is our meaningful first step.”
