Haircuts and help for the homeless
Event provides a
‘safe place’

Free bus rides for stu-
dents, anywhere in the
county. Hair cuts. Dental
services. Housing assistance.
Even programs at the library.
All these and more ser-
vices were to be found
Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Proj-
ect Homeless Connect at the
Seaside Civic and Conven-
tion Center.
Hundreds of visitors,
volunteers and nonprof-
its turned out to address the
needs of Clatsop County’s
homeless population.
Clatsop
Community
Action, with offi ces in Sea-
side and Astoria, offers
information referral, a per-
sonal care pantry, case man-
agement and more.
Executive director Vivi-
ana Matthews said housing
remains her agency’s big-

inventory and high prices,
rental costs are rarely met

Seaside High School
Vice-Principal Jason Boyd,
with guidance counselors
Trevor Cave and Shelby
Treick, welcomed families
and provided admissions
and enrollment information.
“Being here today is
hopefully helping us to
make some connections to
see what barriers we can
help remove,” Boyd said.
The Seaside Library
maintained a presence at the
event.
“We want to make sure
our homeless population
knows what free services
they can get,” executive
director Esther Moberg said.
“We remind them all of our
programs are free. We have
things like our paperback
exchange, our magazines are
all free.”
Homeless people come
to the library for shelter, she
said. “On a rainy, stormy day
they’re going to come in and
hang out sometimes as long
