Evicting the Elderly
A Tough Summer for Portland's Homeless Women
BY MATT DAVIS

Alice Malacote, a woman in her 80s frequently spotted spare-changing =
near Powell's and Whole Foods, will become the latest addition to =
Portland's female homeless population if she is evicted, as planned, =
from her Park Tower apartment on SW Salmon on August 29.

Sean Cruz-a legislative aide to Oregon State Senator Avel Gordly, who =
came across Malacote when she was begging on Burnside recently, has =
taken up her case.

"Right now I've been saying that if they change the locks on Alice's =
apartment, I'm going to go down and chain myself to the front door. Here =
is this 85-year-old lady being threatened with eviction. I'd never have =
thought it," he says. Malacote, through Cruz, declined an interview.

While the exact basis for Malacote's imminent eviction remains =
unclear-Park Tower Apartments are owned by Harsch Investments, a =
financial vehicle for Portland industrialists Harold and Arlene =
Schnitzer; its lawyers at Bittner and Hahs did not return the Mercury's =
calls-it's a situation lamented by many working on behalf of Portland's =
homeless (many of whom are familiar with Malacote's situation).

"She must be terrified. I'm not blaming the Schnitzers, but how can a =
society like ours let this happen? There has to be some safety net," =
says Monica Beemer, executive director of the Sisters of the Road =
caf=E9, which works to help women down on their luck.

But Malacote's situation is by no means unique-plenty of vulnerable =
older women are facing eviction at the moment, according to Mya =
Chamberlin, senior case manager at the Friendly House, which works on =
behalf of elderly homeless in Portland's Northwest, Downtown, and Pearl =
Districts. Other homeless advocates agree that women, in particular, =
have had a difficult summer.

Increased pressure on Portland's landlords to convert to condos thanks =
to rising real estate prices, coupled with dwindling federal resources =
to help those with mental health problems, are the two biggest factors =
pushing landlords to be less sympathetic toward their elderly tenants, =
according to Chamberlin.

On Tuesday, August 8, one of Chamberlin's 74-year-old female clients had =
an eviction overturned by a judge with just 12 hours to go before the =
woman was locked out of her home, while another woman in her 80s was =
recently threatened with eviction by her landlord unless she took =
psychiatric drugs to control her temper.

"It's a good question where these women can go if they are evicted. =
Almost all are in subsidized housing, and once you have an eviction on =
your record, you can't go back," Chamberlin says, adding, "In my =
opinion, it's a policy issue. No one is holding landlords responsible." =
Chamberlin would like to see an ordinance that requires landlords =
evicting elderly tenants to call the county's aging and disability =
services referral line.

Women on Portland's streets have suffered two further blows this =
summer-the closure of 34 women-only beds earlier this year at the =
Salvation Army's Harbor Lights shelter on SW 2nd, and the closure of =
Rose Haven-a day center for 90 homeless women on NW 3rd, on the last day =
of June.

Money for the Harbor Lights shelter was pulled by the city last October =
as part of its 10-year plan to end homelessness, and given to charities =
aiming to house homeless women for the long term, rather than shelter =
them overnight. Likewise, Portland's Catholic Charities group =
re-directed its funds from Rose Haven to fund a longer-term project, =
dubbed Housing Transitions, which will not be offering assistance until =
October.

In the mean time, however, Portland's homeless women are without two key =
services. According to Portland Police Officer Jeff Myers, who works =
with homeless in the City's downtown area, the declining number of =
short-term options for women has had "a snowball effect. The women have =
become much more vulnerable."

The city's homeless program manager, Heather Lyons, says the city's new =
strategy is to help women over the long term. "Rather than having a bed =
to go to, Portland's homeless women now have an opportunity for =
long-term housing which has been shown to be more effective in ending =
homelessness."

Sources close to Malacote's situation are saying an eviction now looks =
"very likely." With lengthy waiting lists to get into long-term =
accommodations, such strategies are likely to be of small comfort to her =
when she becomes homeless on the morning of August 30.
