Street Reach Survey
The Good Human Street Survivor program encourages those struggling on the streets to fill out this questionnaire. We do not collect names. What we do with the details is compile statistical data to assist us in coming up with better results on the streets. Please take the time to help us help you buy filling out our questionnaires. We REALLY appreciate the help!
Ryan has been helping out on his spare time for the last 6 months. His compassion is unreal! We appreciate all he does and believe he reflects what being a "Good Human" is all about.

Oregon boast the 2nd highest homelessness in the United States, only 2nd to California.
Doing what we've been doing is not working. There needs to be changes made in the systems intended to help.
Our methods START with face to face interactions, mentorship and continued friendship. Start with the core individual and work up from there.

Frequently asked questions and misconceptions:
1) Why don't people use the shelters and rescue missions?
Answer: They do, but typically their are waiting lists and when you do get in you only get to stay for a a few days. This equates to only a break from the streets instead of a course of action for change.
2) From what I see on the streets they are all drunks and drug addicts.
Answer: Their are many stages of where a person ends up when they become homeless. Typically the ones you see on the streets panhandling or drunk etc are to the worst points of it. Many deal with their trauma they're having on the streets by self medicating as many people in the working class do as well to deal with life's struggles. Remember, for every one person you SEE their are many more you don't who are almost to the point of no return. We try to find the ones that are new to the streets and intervene before they get to that point in their lives.
3) They just don't want to work or pay bills and taxes.
Answer: Some are like that. Some purposely stay "Off grid" due to medical / mental issues they feel create havoc when around people. Others have fallen so low financially they have given up efforts to try to correct their issues after having exhausted the systems to help them. Others will work if given a chance but unfortunately without a physical address, transportation etc it is VERY difficult to get to the point of working without some major intervention efforts and flexibility of the employers and landlords.
