In our Portland metro area, data shows that we must make an astounding $33.37 per hour to afford a two-bedroom apartment – that’s nearly $70,000 a year! In our state, this leaves folks like service workers, truck drivers, home health workers, and many others making well under the average needed to make rent.
That’s why we’re helping people get and stay housed every day, which strengthens neighborhoods, too. We accomplish this by building housing people can afford and offering programs to maintain housing stability, which, so importantly, prevents the homelessness that is deeply impacting all of us.
When the cost of living rises as it has been, demand for our support grows. Our Just Future is prepared, especially in hard times like these, to address the housing and homelessness crises.
Our effective programs and experienced team are making a real impact, and your support is vital to our success. Will you invest in our community with a financial contribution?
