Living Houseless in VancouverCourtney Ligman fell into addiction after losing her housing and being isolated in an abusive relationship. But a permanent spot in Vancouver, Washington's first Safe Stay Community — a pallet shelter group called The Outpost in the city's Image neighborhood — helped Ligman get back on her feet. “They have everybody for everything. If it’s a mental health crisis, if it’s a drug crisis, whatever it is. Because there’s a lot of people in crisis out there, and they do have somebody that can help you,” she said. Now she's sober, employed and looking for permanent housing for herself and her dog.

Bridging the Border: A Family DividedIn 2017, a Vancouver family’s life was upended. Ramon Flores-Garcia, an undocumented immigrant who had lived in the United States for 20 years and in Clark County, Washington, for nearly a decade, was on a business trip to Everett. There, he stayed at a Motel 6, whose employees gave his information to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He was deported to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, leaving behind his wife, seven children and community ties. Flores now lives in Tijuana, Mexico. His wife and children have left the Vancouver area and live in Chula Vista, Calif., to be closer to him. We parallel their lives on opposite sides of the border, exploring how they’ve managed a family split in two. (Amanda Cowan and Jessica Prokop of The Columbian.
