Lincoln City Homeless Solutions, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, has been  created to establish outreach centers through which information and referral services for marginalized populations, such as the homeless, poor, low income, seniors, veterans and disenfranchised, may be guided to helpful services addressing their needs. In partnership with other agencies and groups, helping these diverse populations obtain the help and care they need is essential. Among our many goals are the following:

  • Operate the SHARP (Solutions for Homeless and At Risk Populations) Program – see the full description on the SHARP page from the above menu. Call the hotline – 1-541-200-7036 – for community resources.
  • Train volunteers how to use our comprehensive website (see site location above) of agency information for use when meeting individually with those at-risk populations.
  • Network with other agencies to identify gaps and overlaps in coverage to synergistically maximize function and funding through a city-wide consortium.

This is truly an abbreviated statement of our vision “to make a difference” in people’s lives. The enthusiasm of our Board of Directors is contagious and we trust you will be as excited as we are in helping people who need our care and attention. Below are some short profiles of those serving on the initial Board of Directors.
