The Salvation Army opened a new shelter in Portland for homeless women.

For women who are homeless, the hazards of the night — and of makeshift sleeping arrangements — are all too real. Assault and disease always lurk nearby. Of the total number of people considered homeless inside Multnomah County — estimated at more than 4,700 in 2011 — 37 percent are women.

This week, the Salvation Army took an additional step toward assisting these vulnerable women as it opens a newly renovated facility to help homeless women transition to housing. Among other services, the Salvation Army Female Emergency Shelter — SAFES — facility will provide 50 women a place to rest for 30 consecutive days in the former Harbor Light building at Southwest Second Avenue and Burnside. During this 30-day period, advocates will work with the women to connect them with services needed to help them overcome their homeless situations.
