Help Us Build a Future Founded in Housing and Economic Justice

We are asking all who are able to join us to support our community in a powerful way: help us build a future founded in housing and economic justice.

How We Build Toward Justice at Human Solutions

Every year the team at Human Solutions partners with as many as 15,000 of our neighbors as they seek the long-term housing we all deserve (but too many of us lack). After doing this work for 33 years, we know that prioritizing housing first is a proven strategy that lays the foundation for folks to navigate their personal path to real financial stability.

We need your help now to ensure that everyone in our community has a place to call home and the economic freedom to pursue their dreams. Thank you for contributing today to this crucial investment in our communities.

This couple moved from tent to shelter and on to their own apartment in time for a new baby to arrive. As Mom said, “They really believed in us. It makes all the difference in the world.”

East County Matters!

We love East Portland and East Multnomah County, our home and the focus of our investments, advocacy and programs since 1988. It is one of the most wonderfully diverse areas of our state. It is also a place where folks are more likely to live in crowded and unreliable housing, face food insecurity, experience language barriers, work frontline jobs or have lost a job this year. Our programs address all of these needs. I am so proud of how quickly and effectively our team has responded to the pandemic’s many challenges. We are providing:

  • Emergency shelter
  • Rapid rehousing
  • Rent, utility and cash assistance
  • Help finding good jobs and boosting incomes
  • Food boxes and meals
  • Learning supports for children
  • All in a COVID-19-safe way (of course!)

We are also pushing for real systems change so fewer people have to work so hard to just get by.

Can you help today by fueling this important progress in our community? (It’s quick to give at:
