The homeless situation in Central Oregon is getting worse. “We are seeing higher numbers. We are seeing people from all walks of life. I’ve had three people in here Wednesday. There unemployment is going to run out in the next two months. They can't find a job and they don't know what they are gonna do.” Taffy Gleason of the Bend Community Center says Central Oregon desperately needs shelter. She says Bethlehem Inn and the Shepherd's House can only hold 175 people and there are thousands that are homeless. She says the numbers of homeless have quadrupled in the last four years. In years past, the Bend Community Center did 200 meals a week and now they are doing 1200. Gleason has run out of tents and is asking for cold weather gear and donations. She adds that most of the new homeless are people that have lived in Central Oregon for more than a decade.
