Thank you for your most recent correspondence regarding the homeless. I greatly appreciate your list of
shelters on the West Coast Corridor which currently offer work placement services. When the Senate considered
the urgent relief for the Homeless Act I added an amendment which would provide for case management to track and
assist the homeless in obtaining comprehensive services, including job training. It is likely that this matter will
come up during debate on welfare reform. Your interest and compassion are to commended.

Dear Mr. Walters
Thank you for sending me a copy of your letter to Governor
Goldschmidt regarding your concern over the budget for the Oregon
Shelter Network. I appreciate your bringing your concerns and
comments to my attention.
There is no question that the issue of homeless is
a huge problem and we must all work together to address the cause of
the problem and not just warehouse these individuals"
I find it reassuring that people like you are concerned about the
problems facing our country, and are interested in actively
searching for solutions. Again, thank you for getting in touch with me. I have made a note
of your position and will be sure to keep your comments in mind.
Sincerely,SIGNED BOB PACKWOOD
