Walking with the homeless

Oregon's homeless struggle every day for food and shelter. They also struggle with the wounds of child abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence. Oregon Housing and Community Services' one night homeless count last year, identified 1,684 homeless Oregonians, out of a total count of 19,208, as victims of domestic violence. Tracking such trauma among the homeless is difficult at best and often not tracked at all in cases involving homeless adults who were abused as children. Worse still, homeless victims are often unable to find support or even recognition of their trauma.
