Eugene, OR - When you’re walking down the street and see a homeless person injured, or in trouble or unconscious, what do you do? Do you walk by… do you stop to assist? Terry Moede of TK Moede Consulting implores you to take action. “If you cannot stop to assist, call 911, or stop someone to assist or engage,” explains Terry.

Who are these homeless people, these underserved people? The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development acknowledges four categories of people who qualify as legally homeless: 1) those who are currently homeless, 2) those who will become homeless in the imminent future, 3) certain youths and families with children who suffer from home instability, caused by a hardship, and 4) those who suffer from home instability caused by domestic violence.

Beginning her career as a respiratory therapist in 1970, Terry worked as a direct care giver for 17 years. In 1987, she transitioned to IT, working on the first computer systems designed to gather demographic, financial and health data that supports patient care (EHR). As a certified PMP/professional project manager, Terry moved on to work with various healthcare delivery systems and Fortune 500 companies. Terry founded TK Moede Consulting Services in 2008.

In 2019, she focused her professional background to help non-profits serve the underserved. In this advisory capacity, she has been working with White Bird Clinic in Eugene, OR, whose mission is to provide compassionate, humanistic healthcare and supportive services.

As for the future, Terry shares, “I am questionable and concerned about our future. Homelessness has become normalized in America/invisible.”
