The City of Eugene is currently leasing a building at 450 W. 5th Ave. to open next fall as a Resource Center for people experiencing homelessness.
City staff are working with a Steering Committee comprised of neighborhood residents, businesses, neighborhood association representatives, social service providers, and people with lived experience of homelessness. Our vision is to initiate program(s) that will lead to positive outcomes both for unhoused individuals accessing the Resource Center and for the surrounding neighborhood.
As a stakeholder, we are inviting you to answer a few questions and provide feedback on the goals, outcomes, and metrics that the Steering Committee has developed to guide the implementation and evaluation of the Resource Center.
The Committee will use the feedback gathered in order to:
At this time, the Steering Committee does not anticipate the Resource Center to be a drop-in center, but rather a location that can be accessed via appointment only and whose programs work closely with social service providers who conduct street outreach to homeless individuals in the community.
While the City and Steering Committee acknowledge the larger challenges of homelessness and the impacts of camping in the community, the goal of this survey is to make sure that the Resource Center benefits people who are homeless and the neighborhood. Therefore, we ask that you focus your input on the Resource Center project and the questions below. If you have input or questions related to homelessness more broadly, you may choose to contact City Council.
