Board of Directors
A volunteer board of directors leads Impact NW and serves as champions and keepers of its mission to prevent homelessness. The Board helps to set the course for the organization and oversee its progress.
The impact of our Board touches thousands of people in our community at a critical moment in time. The ongoing housing crisis, fueled by the lingering pandemic, is displacing thousands of people, threatening to forever change the heart and soul of our region. Led by the Board, Impact NW is responding by stabilizing and strengthening 16,000 people a year who face unstable housing.
Our Board represents the rich diversity that makes up the Portland region. The Board places high value in the perspectives of candidates whose lived experiences represent the people we serve. Our Bylaws stipulate that half of our Board be comprised of people who identify as Indigenous, Black, Brown, Melanated, Immigrant or Asian people.
