Success so far in Bend with Veterans Village, Lighthouse, safe parking program, St. Vincent dePaul. More expected with Central Oregon Villages 27th St. facility and Rainbow Motel. Still more needs to be done, of course. But that's a promising start. This is a national humanitarian crisis.

I see the movement of groups and the numbers are manageable. Things can be improved by having no tolerance for illegal drug abuse. The young drug addicted should be put into forced programs to recover. Mentally ill need to be institutionalized if they cannot care for themselves. Economic get help

Sadly, republicans won't put one cent towards social programs. The GOP loves to control their masses by keeping them uneducated and poor.

Guess I'm not the only one who answers NO, 97% does! Did you get that Bend city council? YOU and your buddies in Salem are ENABLING HOMELESSNESS and making Bend the Premier Homeless & Fentanyl Resort in the country.

California and many other states offer nothing. So the more Oregon offers them, the more of these out of state homeless will be drawn here.

more homeless people seem to be a symptom of a larger problem

Mary Rose Place is the latest Bend Street being taken over by the homeless, with more derelict RVs and mounting garbage. How many more streets will the City donate to the homeless? Progress? The exact opposite!!!!

If you build it they will come! Seems like Bend is trying to become the Portland of Central Oregon.

Throwing good money after bad will not solve the problem. Until drugs are a criminal offence, people are held accountable and free services are stopped, problem will just become worse.

Did you know that there are more empty, perfectly good, houses in this country than there are homeless people?

That is absolutely untrue. And as a man of God and Jesus, instead of acting holier than thou, get off your butt and do something to help them.

It's always busy, but I usually need help later in the evening. 10 pm until 2 am sucks though.

This ecosystem is as dependent on fire as it is on rain.
