Tác động Kits
Vô gia cư là một trải nghiệm đầy thử thách. Đối với những người sống bên ngoài, có vẻ như thế giới không biết về họ. Đối với những người khác, có mối quan tâm ngày càng tăng và sâu sắc đối với những người sống ngoài trời.
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.
