Join us to celebrate the Power of One!

Wednesday, May. 24, 12:00 PM — 1:00 PM

The Sentinel Hotel – 614 SW 11th Avenue, Portland, OR

The Impact NW Power of One Luncheon celebrates the work made possible by generous individuals, businesses, and organizations that have supported us over the past year, while also engaging new community partnerships.

Limited to just one hour, this luncheon will inspire you to make a dynamic change in our community through personal effort, one step at a time, and inspire others to recognize the Power of One in themselves.


Each year, Impact NW celebrates one exceptional client with the Yolanda Award and one volunteer or group with the Power of One Award.

Yolanda Award

Yolanda Gallegos first came to Impact NW’s teen center as a troubled teenager. She worked with Impact NW over the years to complete her high school education, find employment and earn a college degree. Today, she is a teacher in North Portland, where she has returned to provide others the encouragement to fulfill their dreams and establish a prosperous, safe family life. Impact NW has awarded the Yolanda Award to exceptional Impact NW clients for more than a decade to honor the heroic human spirit that Ms. Gallegos’ story exemplifies.

Power of One Award

The Power of One Award is given to an Impact NW community member or team who has made a significant difference in the lives of the clients we serve in multiple ways while infecting others with their enthusiasm such that they too become involved. The Power of One Award recipient has persuaded and led others to action and service at Impact NW.
