Human Solutions


Human Solutions counters the forces that keep people and communities in poverty by building relationships and assets that create opportunity – today and for future generations. East Multnomah County is the heart of our investments, advocacy and programs.

Bottom Line for Portland

Human Solutions works in East Portland and wider East Multnomah County to help neighbors experiencing homelessness or housing instability find the housing and economic security we all deserve. Your donation is an investment in one of the most diverse areas of Oregon, where we are rising – together – to meet urgent needs and build toward a better future. To get there, we offer a range of services, including emergency shelter and rapid rehousing, training for career-track jobs and new affordable housing for the long-term stability of people in our region.


"Thank you for all you have done to help my family find housing and get our lives back on track." Heather

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Racial justice is at the forefront of our work at Human Solutions. As a social-services and affordable-housing provider in one of the most racially diverse areas of our state, we have a duty to address the racial injustices that are foundational to America’s inequitable housing and economic systems. Our personal and organizational work toward justice, equity and inclusion is essential to how we show up, especially in our efforts to deliver equitable results for BIPOC and create a connected community where everyone is valued and has access to the tools they need to thrive.


All incentives for Give!Guide 2021 have been distributed to qualified donors.
