Eugene's Unhoused

Searching for solutions, filling in the cracks

The homeless are not the problem; homelessness is. Eugene’s advocates for the unhoused are working overtime, searching for solutions. We should do more, we can do more and our local governments must do more. 

The dog ban pushes those with nowhere to go out of downtown or forces them to give up a source of comfort and security, without fixing the root problem that puts people on the streets.

In this issue we look at Pastor Dan Bryant, one of the city’s tireless workers for those in need, and the unsung Eugene Public Library, which has been filling in the cracks a day shelter should fill. — Camilla Mortensen
