We are dedicated to building stronger communities by providing
women with the essential resources to face domestic abuse,
substance abuse, and unemployment.
Our goal is to builda facility that will strengthen communities by providing services that will connect women and families with livability resources and employment training programs.
Every night in Portland, there are over 500 homeless families with
children who are forced nightly to compete for a spot in one of
Portland’s emergency shelters. Many must resort to staying on the
streets, or in parks.
Local governments are facing the fallout from national issues
including nearly 10 percent unemployment, high numbers of
homeless, a national health care crisis, and waves of foreclosures.
The number of families with children experiencing homelessness & joblessness in Multnomah County has increased by 35 percent over the last two years, a local human tragedy.

Our Yearly Fundraising Events
We produce two large events per year that are vital fundraisers to help us
achieve our goal to build a shelter and resource center. These two events
events are produced and managed by our small staff of women who
work hard to see that each event becomes increasingly more successful
Our amazing staff is made up of women with very different backgrounds,
and many of them have overcome personal challenges of domestic
violence, substance abuse, and/or homelessness. Each of them
understands what it’s like to be on unstable footing and then to find solid
ground again with The Portland Women’s Foundation.
