January - June 2017
 

 

KNOW YOUR CITY

Engaging people through tours, forums, youth programs, publications, and other creative projects that help to educate people about this region, its history, and its culture. Their mission is to strengthen the fabric of the Portland community by bringing together audiences from all walks of life and empowering the voices of historically marginalized people.

 

NORTHWEST EARTH INSTITUTE

There's no shortage of information about the serious challenges facing our planet, and although most people say they would like to do more, they don't know where to start. NEI gives people a framework to talk about our relationship with the planet and to share in discovering new ways to live, work, create and consume.

 

OUTGROWING HUNGER

Nurturing the growth of people and places toward their highest potential for health, well-being, and sustainability. They help low-income, immigrant, and refugee families participate in garden projects in their own neighborhoods. They operate 6 acres of gardens at 9 locations serving more than 350 households, and their Our Earth program provides garden-based nutrition and environmental education to nearly 6,000 students each month.

 

CHILDREN'S BOOK BANK

Two-thirds of families in poverty have no children’s books at home and these kids often arrive at kindergarten well behind their middle-income peers. The Children’s Book Bank addresses this literacy challenge and improves the likelihood that children will succeed as future readers by engaging community volunteers in gathering, cleaning, and sorting books. CBB gives thousands of local low income children individual collections of 14 books each to take home and keep, free of charge.

 

PDX JOBS WITH JUSTICE

A coalition of more than 100 labor organizations and community groups dedicated to protecting the rights of working people and supporting community struggles to build a more just society. JwJ believes that all workers should have collective bargaining rights, employment security and a decent standard of living within an economy that works for everyone.

 

VOLUNTEER'S OF AMERICA - FAMILY RELIEF NURSERY

An intervention/prevention program for families with children six weeks to five years old. They work to strengthen fragile families at serious risk of abusing or neglecting their children or of permanently losing custody of their children. The Nursery offers a holistic, positive intervention with both children and parents. All services are provided at no charge to families.
