Emergency Housing Network

The Emergency Housing Network brings together hundreds of community partners and stakeholders who want to network with, educate, or update other advocates and agencies serving the homeless and at-risk populations of greater Salem.

The Emergency Housing Network meets every second Thursday at the Union Gospel Mission on 345 Commercial St NE from 11am to noon. Attendance is open to organizations and advocates interested in comprehensive collaboration to end homelessness.

Salem Housing Authority runs each Emergency Housing Network meeting and publishes a monthly newsletter of agency events and updates. Contact us to present your organization at a meeting.

Only EHN agencies may submit lottery nominations on behalf of their clients. Dial 211 to find a shelter within the Salem area.

In partnership with ARCHES, SHA’s Veterans' Assistance Program (VRAP) provides rental assistance, barrier removal funding and intensive case management to homeless veterans. The goal of the program is to permanently house least 42 homeless veterans annually as well as to provide the wrap-around supports necessary for their long-term housing stability.

VRAP is funded by a grant from the Oregon Health Authority and is operated by ARCHES. Please contact ARCHES at 503-399-9080 for more information.
