Why is Old Town Chinatown (OTCT) a Caring Community?
Its housing landscape is hard-wired for healthcare housing for the homeless. The Healthcare Sector includes two types of housing: 813 supportive care housing units and 668 shelters.
There is a proposal for a new low barrier, 200 bed shelter to be located at the North Gate of the New Chinatown Japantown Historic District. The Historic District is but five blocks long. The new 113 room,"Lifestyle Boutique" will be at the other end at the South Gate. A Shelter Proposal Update is an attachment in our Guide, Portland's Caring Community, pages 25-27.
