We are dedicated to teaching about and defending the human, civil and constitutional rights of people experiencing houselessness.
We are community organization raising awareness of problems that houseless persons in our community are facing. Lack of affordable housing, racial oppression, sexism, and other obstacles are keeping people houseless. Through public education and direct actions, we are helping to reduce houselessness in Portland by increasing public understanding on what it is to be houseless, how everyday people become houseless, and how we can best help and support those seeking a way out of houselessnes. We invite you to learn who we are and what we do. We invite you to become involved in our mission. We welcome you, no matter who you are, or your current situation.
