Out In The Cold In Lane County

OutInTheCold.jpg

Lane County is the most populous county JPR serves.  And along with the big population, there is a large population of homeless people. 

Homeless advocates in the county have provided a number of innovative programs, like Opportunity Village Eugene. 

But there are many other entities involved in caring, or attempting to care for, the homeless population.  ShelterCare is one of them. 

Community Sharing in Cottage Grove also plays a role.  Sheltercare Assistant Director of Programs Risa Holden and Darius Pomeroy from the Street Outreach Team visit, with Mike Fleck of Community Sharing, as part of our ongoing series on homeless people and services, Out in the Cold.
