Homeless Intervention Services

Since 1986, Northwest Housing Alternatives has been fighting homelessness in Clackamas County. Through the Annie Ross House emergency shelter and the HomeBase program, NHA serves over 200 households each year. Our programs help around 700 people avoid homelessness or transition to permanent housing annually.

Clackamas County has a growing population of over 400,000. Today, 2,293 people are homeless in Clackamas County; 1,165 are children. These are our most vulnerable families, living outdoors in cars, parks, or on the streets. The Annie Ross House is the only shelter for both moms and dads with children experiencing homelessness in our county.

Help Northwest Housing Alternatives fight homelessness by signing up to volunteer.
