The City is leading with compassion to meet the needs of all members of our community.

Reducing homelessness in Hillsboro and the surrounding region requires collaborative efforts on proven solutions, including adequate year-round shelter options with rapid pathways to housing.

To address the community's critical need for more shelter space and safe sleeping options, the City has acquired property to create a future year-round shelter. Located at the corner of TV Hwy and SW 17th Ave, the property currently includes ample greenspace and two vacant structures.

We know you may have questions, and we are here to answer them - together.

Temporary Safe Rest Pods on SW 17th Avenue

The City of Hillsboro, Washington County, and OpenDoor Housing Works acted quickly to provide unhoused community members with temporary shelter by providing Safe Rest Pods at the Year-Round Shelter site.

The Safe Rest Pods opened on October 21. Move-in is on a rolling basis as pod construction continues.

The Safe Rest Pods will provide safe sleeping spaces and support services for 30 to 40 unhoused individuals and couples until March 2023. Visit our Shelters webpage to learn more.

  • The January 2021 Point In Time Count identified 357 people living unsheltered in cities throughout Washington County. Of those, 60% were located within Hillsboro. 

    Residents living unsheltered may be sleeping in a tent, in a vehicle or RV, on the sidewalk with little more than a tarp, or at other locations not meant for human habitation

    In response to this need, the City of Hillsboro acquired property to become a future year-round shelter for single adults and couples. 

    As we work to create a year-round shelter, we want to hear what's important to you!
