We Believe in Portland

At Impact NW, we believe in Portland. We believe in this entire region – where we live, work, and raise our families. Last year, we served 22,000 people. Half of these people identify as Indigenous, Black, Brown, Immigrant, Melanated, or Asian people and have been most impacted by the housing crisis. What’s more – over 95% of these people remain stable in their homes today.

We are not giving up, and we know that you aren’t either.

Watch the videocast for ‘We Are Impact,’ our biggest fundraiser of the year. On May 18, 2023 we welcomed local government officials, Impact NW staff and leadership, a special guest speaker, and an inspirational story from a family we were privileged to serve last year. This event was full of gratitude and calls to action! ‘We Are Impact’ focused on how we can work together to find human-centered solutions to the housing and homelessness crises in our Portland community but we still need your help!

Together, we can create a Portland region we can all believe in.

We are committed to keeping 700 households at risk of homelessness safely housed this summer. We are so close to reaching our goal of $200,000! Help us get there by the end of June.


Thank you to all of those who joined us for ‘We Are Impact’ and helped to prevent homelessness in our Portland community.
