The iconic Portland, Oregon neighborhood where the state capital is located has been home to Portland’s first LGBTQ homeless shelter since it opened in 2009.
Now, the shelter is closing its doors.
The shelter, known as The Home, is located on a block called The Olde City, which is home to the oldest homeless shelter in the country.
It is located next to the Portland Public Library, which has been known for providing housing for homeless and mentally ill people.
The Portland Tribune reports the shelter was closed earlier this year after receiving more than $1 million in federal funding.
The shelter was also the home to several Portland artists who have been working to create art projects for the homeless population, including photographer James Anderson and musician Jason Johnson.
The Portland City Council voted last week to close the shelter.
The state of Oregon has committed to providing housing to more than 300,000 people by 2024, but it has yet to reach the target.
The state has also said that the goal of closing the shelter by 2022 is too ambitious.
A spokesperson for the Oregon Department of Human Services told The Oregonian/OregonLive that the agency has been working with the shelter to find a permanent home, but has not made any final decisions yet.
“We are committed to keeping our shelter open and that means keeping a high level of staff available to staff and care for people in our shelter.
The Shelter is in a position to provide a permanent, permanent home for people experiencing homelessness and they are very hopeful that they will be able to find one,” said the spokesperson.
“We are working with them to get this housing done as quickly as possible.”
The shelter is one of the oldest in the U.S. and serves more than 500 homeless people and their families.
Its closure is the latest setback for a community that has faced increased discrimination and violence over the past decade.
In 2015, the city of Portland, which includes The Home as well as a number of other homeless shelters in Portland, voted to allow people to be charged a fee for staying at the shelter after a federal judge ruled that the fee violated state law.
