Make an Impact
The Portland region stands at a tipping point. A housing crisis has displaced thousands of our neighbors in recent years. COVID has escalated those losses and put thousands more people in jeopardy. Meanwhile, awareness is increasing about racial justice, especially for our Black community. How will we respond? Will we lose the heart and soul of our region or will we come together to support our neighbors like never before?
For people like Matt, Jake, Keia and thousands more of our neighbors, partnership and support from Impact NW can mean the difference between stability in their own homes or the traumatic experience of homelessness.
Impact NW is 100% committed to solutions that restore the livability and sustainability that the Portland region is so well known for. Our driving solution is to prevent homelessness. It’s a simple yet powerful focus. By helping people get the supports they need at the critical moment, we help them avoid a crisis. Everyone benefits, whether they realize it or not.
$1,250 = Impact NW’s cost to stabilize a family.
