EPHC mission to Advance racial equity and social justice through the power of our Latinx roots, culture, and community
Bottom Line for Portland
What started as an act of love for our migrant workers turned into an organization for the entire Latino community and this is achieved through the following departments: Education, Economic Sustainability, Community Wellness and UNICA, our DV/SA Prevention and Intervention services. Today, EPHC serves more than 20,000 people annually in and around the Portland Metro Area.
Join EPHC in helping families overcome social and systemic barriers and develop a sense of personal empowerment. This will ultimately help transform the Portland Metro Area into a more just and sustainable community.
EPHC supports the Latinx community and immigrants by improving their quality of life and opening the doors of opportunity. We are a BIPOC-LED organization, whose commitment is to serve and advocate for social justice and racial equity. We continue to build our capacity to increase services in response to the growing needs of the diverse communities.
“I was having a hard time at school while seeing my parents struggling to make ends meet, it was then that I met a mentor at school who brought me and my family to EPHC and they helped us when we needed it most. It wasn't just about the assistance we received, everyone there treated me and my family with respect and showed us how much they really do care for the community. Thanks you EPHC.”
- Rosalinda (school base program participant)
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We are of the community, for the community. EPHC strives to be both culturally inclusive and culturally responsive. This means our work is rooted in trauma informed practices and built on empowerment models that give individuals the power that can be lost through oppressive systems. We also advocate for equal access, education, systems change and capacity building for communities of color.
