CitySpeak Livestream: Homeless in Corvallis, 2020 Changes
Help for the unhoused has changed in Corvallis this last year, and next week the people behind those changes will appear on CitySpeak to field questions from the public.
The county has, for at least the third time in five years, reorganized its advisory board that works on homeless issues, now called the Housing, Opportunity Planning and Equity advisory board, or HOPE. How is this new board different, and how will it make changes where others failed.
