Bend plans to open a home for the homeless this May, paid for by federal dollars. Housing Works purchased a four-plex on the southeast side of Bend. Keith Wooden, the Director of Development for Housing Works says some work needs to be done, but the home should be ready for occupancy by this spring. “We're excited to get started on this valuable asset. It’s the first homeless permanent, supportive housing that is not a shelter, or a temporary stay situation. It's hitting a need not being served.” The funds are part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program that buys up short sale or foreclosed properties to prevent blighted areas.
