From the Gresham Outlook

“East Multnomah County is receiving a Project Turnkey grant of nearly $7 million to acquire and convert a 75-room motel into a COVID-respite shelter for anyone needing a roof over their head.

The funds were awarded by the Oregon Community Foundation to Rockwood Community Development Corporation, which will helm the new shelter in north Rockwood.
