What We Are Doing

The City of Eugene is a partner in efforts to address and reduce homelessness, but no one entity can solve this complex issue alone. 

Use the buttons below to learn more about the City's work to provide more safe places for people to access shelter, teaming with regional agencies, increasing affordable housing throughout Eugene, and information from the past decade about how we got here. 

Some key efforts that the City is currently focused on include:

  • Working with Lane County to implement the Lane County Homeless Services System recommendations (TAC report) including street outreach to unsheltered individuals in Eugene and completing the new Emergency Shelter and Navigation Center which will add 75 low-barrier shelter beds in a permanent facility.
  • Implementing strategies outlined in the City's Community Safety Initiative, including increased support for alternative shelter programs and Resource Center for people experiencing homelessness.
  • Improving current programs and building strong, collaborative, community networks that are coordinated and responsive to different needs, including those around camp clean-up and response.
