Family Promise of Tualatin Valley
The mission of Family Promise of Tualatin Valley (FPTV) is to equip vulnerable families and individuals to end the cycle of homelessness through a community based response.
Bottom Line for Portland
Family homeless has only increased in the past 2 years. In 2020, FPTV sheltered 45 households for a total of 6,165 bed-nights and provided eviction prevention or shelter diversion for 182 individuals. In 2021 those numbers doubled. We sheltered 90 households, 14,342 bed-nights, and provided prevention support for 454 individuals.
One of our program participants shared “After I entered shelter, I was able to get back to work, raise my credit score, make a budget, and plan ahead for rent payments. The weekly food delivery made it easy for me to focus on work and finding an apartment within my budget. The weekly case management sessions kept me accountable to my to-do list each week. FPTV made it easy for me to ask for help.”
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
While anybody can be in danger of losing their home we know that homelessness disproportionately impacts low income and BIPOC. We have adapted the policies of our program to fit the needs of our community, in consultation with local culturally specific partners. These connections and our established track record and partnerships have allowed us to be a trusted resource.
