Portland Street Medicine
Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of Portland's homeless neighbors.
Bottom Line for Portland
We are the only nonprofit in the Portland Metro region bringing street medicine to homeless individuals and communities. By donating to PSM, you join us in supporting individuals who otherwise are disenfranchised or disconnected, bridging them to sustainable care and services. In 2022, our teams will make over 4,000 patient care engagements.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As a relatively young organization, we're building capacity in all realms of our organization, including in our anti-oppression and community justice work. And we have a lot of work to do! This year, we are focused on establishing our Community Advisory Council made up of people who have experienced homelessness. The Council will be centered on our BIPOC community members and will hold us accountable to the needs of the community and our equity goals. Members of the council will be compensated for their insights and expertise and will be true decisionmakers at PSM! That's what patient-centered care looks like for us.
