Common Causes of Homelessness
Lack of affordable housing – The most prevalent cause
Gentrification - Unfortunately, we are seeing more of this in our Beaverton neighborhoods
No Cause Eviction - Finding a place and putting together moving costs with only 30-60 days notice can be a nightmare.
Unemployment– Losing a job or even hours, especially at minimum wage, often can tip a family into the streets
Family break up – When a parent leaves the family, the family income might go with them, leaving the remaining parent to carry the burden on their own
Domestic Violence – Leaving an abusive relationship can cut off financial resources and stable support system
Medical Bills - Medical emergencies can happen to anyone and can be financially devastating to some.
