Our Initiatives

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.

Our Context

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.

Our Key Values

Never leave the table

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. ⁠

It’s personal

We intentionally invest in relationships as we invest in other aspects of community development. Everyone that works with us and for us is personally involved in the lives of our community. This keeps us relationally connected to our neighbors and community.

Build Bridges, Not Armies

Everything we do is built on an ethic of inclusion, diversity, and justice. Reconciliation is hard work and we are committed to building diverse relational bridges that lead to true justice.⁠

Our Strategy

We work intentionally with members of Oregon's underserved communities to solve systems-level issues with systems-level solutions.
