Advocates For Life Skills And Opportunities (ALSO)



To promote the full inclusion of people experiencing disabilities in the life of their community. 

Bottom Line for Portland

Here at ALSO, we provide 360-degree services for the people we support. in their homes, employment and community. But, it all starts with housing. An estimated 24,000 adults experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in Oregon and SW Washington face housing insecurity. 


We are committed to providing much-needed affordable, accessible, and inclusive housing for people in our communities experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Your donation provides ALSO with the necessary funds to develop new inclusive housing options, make home accessibility modifications, and helps bridge the gap with financial support for housing costs. 


We invite you to join us in our efforts.  Together, we can ensure not only a house but a HOME for the people ALSO supports.


"Accessible housing makes it easy to live and feel normal like everyone else without feeling left behind." Sam Ramirez
