Commissioner Buch has spent her life fighting for equal access to housing. As a former Special Projects Director for St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County, Inc., Commissioner Buch fought for affordable housing solutions in Lane County. Commissioner Buch brings her expertise to the Board of County Commissioners and has made it her mission to end the housing crisis in Lane County.

As a whole, Lane County is working to make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring.  In 2018, Lane County and the City of Eugene identified a need to conduct a Public Shelter Feasibility Study and Homeless Service System analysis. Lane County contracted the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) to conduct this study, which provided information about system-wide gaps in service.
