A new group headed by Curry County Commissioner Susan Brown met last week to address the issues of the homeless and how their needs can be met in the future.

That three-year study was conducted by the Curry County League of Women Voters and found that “nowhere in Oregon was there a more alarming rise in the number of homeless than in Curry County,” it was reported then. “There are the chronically homeless with life and health issues and no support systems, families who lose jobs and homes, and homeless young people, many of whom do not want to be identified.”
