Council to consider tranferring domestic violence staff to county

The Gateway Center for Domestic Violence Services.

The City Council will consider transferring the operation of the Gateway Center for Domestic Violence Services to Multnomah County on Wednesday.

Commissioner Dan Saltzman, who led the creation of the center, says the council now realized the county is a "better fit" for managing the center in East Portland, which provides a wide variety of services and resources to survivors of domestic violence and their children.
