While a lot of work still needs to be done, Multnomah County's new Behavioral Health Resource Center is coming along. On Tuesday, Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici and Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury went inside the building, which is located at Southwest Park Avenue and Southwest Oak Street, for a quick tour. County commissioners approved the $26 million center earlier this year. To help fund it, Bonamici has requested $1.3 million in federal funds. She says they should know by the end of the month if it's approved. "It's a great project that's going to serve the needs in the community and create some good jobs along the way," Bonamici said.
