Portland's 'visible' homelessness and why outreach remains a challenge

Portland is still struggling to help people into safe housing – and street camping, trash and other visible signs of the crisis continue to be big issues inside City Hall and across the Rose City
On the latest episode of Beat Check with The Oregonian, reporter Nicole Hayden discusses the latest developments on her beat. Hayden covers homelessness.
We talked about her street survey that found hundreds of people experiencing homelessness never heard from an outreach worker, other takeaways from her first year reporting on the beat in Portland, why Mayor Ted Wheeler keeps issuing executive orders and what advocates say are feasible ideas to help people off the streets. All that and more.
