"It's been almost 20 years since Portland Mayor Bud Clark introduced the ""12-Point Plan to Break the Cycle of Homelessness"". Fast-forward to 2005. The city has initiated its ""10-Year Plan to End Homelessness"". How has the face of homelessness and our approach to the problem changed? Why do some think the outcomes will be different this time? 
On Friday, Nov.4, City Club convenes a panel of three community leaders who influence local policy: Sten, in charge of the city's program; Nelson, who is overseeing an in-depth survey of 400 Portland homeless; and Schroeder, who brings the views of the downtown business community to the table."
