July 2019 e - n e w s
My name is Yodit Solomon, I’m the 2019 Summer Intern for Central Northeast Neighbors (CNN). I’m an upcoming senior at Grant High School which is almost done getting renovated. I’m super excited to go back to the new school and be back in the beautiful Grant Park neighborhood.
I have lived in Portland for the majority of my life in many of the different neighborhoods. Seeing how involved CNN is with the surrounding community and other neighborhoods is very eye opening. Before I became an Intern I had no idea that there were so many neighborhood associations and a coalition of all of them trying to better the community and make positive changes. Now that I see how many people are involved in the helping the neighborhoods and all of the hard work and events that take place it has helped me make a deeper connection with the community and appreciate it more. Even after my internship is done I hope to still be involved and network with the people around me. I’m very grateful for this opportunity!-
Grant High Generals
My name is Dayvianae Johnson and I am a Central Northeast Neighbors summer intern. I was born in Portland and live in the Hollywood neighborhood. I attend Grant High School as an incoming senior and can’t explain how eager I am to attend the newly remodeled building as it has been under construction for two years. After high school I hope to attend a university to study business. Throughout my years at Grant I’ve attended BSU (Black Student Union) lunch meetings, was a part of a student run step team, played volleyball and attended young life. Young Life is a church based organization for high scholars that meets every Monday night for a bible study and fun games. This year I am hoping to become a student leader at wildlife which is Young Life for middle scholars. 
I've been involved in Central Northeast Neighbors for a long time now, I’ve volunteered at many National Night Outs, clean- up events, tabling events and Halloween parties, so I am pretty familiar with the company. I am very excited to be a part of the community and experience the inclusiveness and help with all that Central Northeast Neighbors does. 
In my free time I like to play volleyball, go on walks with my dog and listen to music.

Homeless and One Point of Contact
There are two ways to report a campsite: an  online form  on the City of Portland’s webpage ( www.portlandoregon.gov/campsites ) or online at  PDXreporter.org . Using PDX Reporter, follow these instructions to create an icon on your smartphone’s home screen:
1)     visit  www.pdxreporter.org  on your phone’s web browser
2)     sign in using the same username and password created for the City’s website
3)     then pin a shortcut (icon) to your phone’s home screen for quick access to the online app.
Please note: Not all reports will result in immediate action by the City. Every report is reviewed and analyzed. Before a cleanup can occur, the City will work to move the camp, and will do so in the least traumatic, most compassionate manner possible. That process,  mandated in the settlement  of the  Anderson v. Portland  lawsuit, requires the City to post notification at a camp before cleanup. For more information see Frequently Asked Questions:  ENFORCEMENT .
For further assistance or help in filing a report, call 503-823-4000.
NOTE: If you are reporting an emergency, call 9-1-1.
Additional information, questions about One Point of Contact reporting system, or the Homelessness/Urban Camping Impact Reduction Prog., email reportpdx@portlandoregon.gov .
