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. That’s why we show up every day in our communities to prevent homelessness. It’s not always easy. But Impact NW and its supporters have never backed away from a challenge.

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.

Please join us and make your impact – help us ensure that 700 vulnerable households remain stable in their homes.

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

All donations made are charitable contributions. If you have any questions, please contact Ada Dortch at adortch@impactnw.org

Here’s what to expect:

We have an exciting event to share with you! ‘We Are Impact’ is our biggest fundraiser of the year. As part of this event, we will welcome 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 will be full of gratitude and calls to action! ‘We Are Impact’ will focus on how we can work together to find human-centered solutions to the housing and homelessness crises in our Portland community.

Please join us – along with Portland business leaders, dedicated community members, and thought partners and advocates to make your impact. We’re so excited to come together in community!
