Construction underway at the Behavioral Health Resource Center in the spring of 2022

Multnomah County purchased the Bushong & Co building at 333 SW Park Ave. in January 2019 for renovation as a behavioral health resource center to help prioritize services for people with mental illness who are experiencing homelessness. 

The project is being developed in partnership with peer-run mental health nonprofits and will include a community resource center, shelter beds and transitional housing.

The first phase of the project, the day center, is slated to open in the fall of 2022.
