Kits de impacto

La falta de vivienda es una experiencia desafiante. Para las personas que viven afuera, parece que el mundo no los conoce. Para todos los demás, existe una creciente y profunda preocupación por las personas que viven al aire libre.

Multnomah County’s Point-in-time homeless count is a total of 4,177 people. Additionally, more than 50,000 people in the Portland area live on the verge of homelessness. One health crisis; emergency room visit, or a lost job can land a family in a shelter or in a tent. The trauma is devastating. Everyone in our community suffers.

Our Impact Kits initiative is a collaboration with Portland’s tech sector to raise awareness of the situations facing people living outside in Portland, and also an opportunity to make a meaningful impact by offering some basic supplies for this marginalized population. Each kit contains basic hygiene items, food, water, and a resource guide. They also contain a lifeline. Volunteers assemble and distribute these kits; creating a human connection that can lead to real change for everyone.
