Salem should not yield to Eugene in effort to help the homeless

Salem Statesman Journal, June 2018

Eugene’s CAHOOTS (Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets) could be considered the gold standard.

The non-emergency mobile crisis intervention unit does more than just sober up the homeless. They perform welfare checks and partner with other nonprofits to offer suicide intervention and prevention.

Tim Black, operations coordinator for CAHOOTS, told the Statesman Journal that the city of Eugene and Lane County bought CAHOOTS its mobile mental-health vans.
