Controversy about the siting and establishment of leading up to this shelter's establishment can be downloaded from below. https://web.archive.org/web/20190615223209/https://alliedcommunities.ilikegray.com/resources/ These documents include: Redacted documents released by the City of Portland after they lost the lawsuit over public records regarding their plans for development of additional homeless shelters in the region. Judge said the city had a legal obligation to release documents sought.
record 1: All public records from the City of Portland related to the keywords of “foster” and “shelter” up to January 2018, which were “to or from Seraphie Allen” and “to or from Berk Nelson”. record 2: All correspondence between city staffer Seraphie Allen and Sarah Iannarone (a failed mayoral candidate who lives far outside of the neighborhood but has organized a pro-shelter campaign) in their attempts to dismiss neighborhood concerns as mere NIMBYism.

You can read the full text of the City’s response here. Of particular irritation within the city’s letter is that they claim “there is no data to support a correlation between homelessness, shelters, and crime.” Yet they site no studies to defend this statement, which runs contradictory to many people’s lived experience. We would love to see someone do such a study, which the city/county state that they won’t do because it would take money away from serving the homeless population. Letter from Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson inviting people to join her Steering Committee to “provide input and advice on this process.”
