Services we do not provide

We do not remove outdoor residents.

Central City Concern’s crews do not move outdoor residents from their sites or participate in “sweeps.” Crews will clean around active camps, provide outdoor residents with resources to clean their areas, and collect trash bags from campers. Service providers are not allowed to touch the personal property of outdoor residents. If you need to report a camp near your business, please call 3-1-1.

We do not remove abandoned automobiles.

Removing abandoned automobiles is a basic service provided by the City of Portland through the Portland Bureau of Transportation. If you have identified an abandoned auto, please report it to PBOT by calling 311.

We cannot clean Multnomah County Property.

This includes bridges, retaining walls, bridge signs, or bridge columns as they are a protected class for Multnomah County.  Please report impacted areas to
