Housing in Portland for my mentally ill son and I.
Hello beautiful people!
Approx. 7.5 years ago my son committed an Assault in the beginning stages of juvenile schizophrenia. He got put into prison under Oregon's Measure 11, Mandatory sentencing. He has been over-medicated, tazed, kicked around by guards and isolated repeatedly. Needless to say, he is quite a mess. The prison administrators have changed the story at the last minute on the county he is being released in, which has sent me scrambling to find housing in Portland's, Mutnohmah County. He is getting out in August of this year. I am trying to keep him out of the psychiatric housing system where he may exposed to more abuse and over-drugging. Does anyone have any ideas about where we can go to live together? I am on Social Security/limited income and he will be.
Hello & welcome to PTO I've moved your thread to the Oregon forum in hopes that our Oregon members will have a idea for housing. I hope you are able to locate something before August!! Good Luck...and congrats on your son's Homecoming!
