Everyone in our community is affected by the homelessness crisis. Especially here in Washington County, the impact of homelessness is present around us every single day.

Hardworking families should be able to afford to put a roof over their head, buy food to eat, and pay their bills. But for too many people — our friends, family, and neighbors who call Washington County home — that dream isn’t a reality.

If you are gainfully employed, you should never have to choose between paying rent, buying food, and accessing medical care, and yet for far too long, the hardworking families of the Portland metro area have been forced to do just that.

Our unions represent more than 60,000 members across the metro area who work in both the public and private sector. Our members provide the essential services that make our communities work. …
