As a community development corporation in Oregon, we serve as a hub or backbone to provide ladders for climbing from poverty into prosperity, improving health outcomes, integrating faith-based and family service programs, creating public-private partnerships, expanding the supply of economical housing and encouraging and assisting commercial development.
Oregon has more income inequality than most states. If Multnomah County were a state, the West side would be the second wealthiest state in America and the East side would be the second poorest.
We are here for the long-term, even when things get hard. We do not launch programs and then leave but we are here until our vision has been accomplished.
We pursue the disconnected and bring them into relationship through what is often hard relational work that is rooted in listening, humility, and learning.
We work intentionally with members of Oregon's underserved communities to solve systems-level issues with systems-level solutions.
