BIPOC-Led Organization

Mission

MISSION: Helping people transition from homelessness to housing 

VISION: A just community in which everyone has access to a safe, affordable home

Bottom Line for Portland

Transition Projects exists to help those experiencing homelessness transition successfully into permanent housing. With 53 years of experience providing shelter, housing, and supportive programs and services for very low-income people we are recognized for our work with veterans, women, people with disabilities, and other highly vulnerable groups. Our team of over 330 assists nearly 10,000 people each year through programs designed to help people leave the streets, find permanent housing, and retain their housing.

 

Your gift helps sustain day-to-day operations, as well as supporting the critical services that are not covered by public funding. Donations enable us to add to a strong and sustainable infrastructure and then provide the wraparound services that will have the greatest impact throughout our housing programs, our seven shelters, our Resource Center and on the streets through our Navigation Team. 

 

One program specifically impacted by your Give!Guide donation is our health and wellness services provided by Wellness Access Specialists. These specialists assist vulnerable populations in their connection to needed medical, mental health, and substance use disorders services for people who have experienced chronic homelessness (one year or more) and are now in permanent supportive housing. Wellness Access Specialists provide engagement, assessment, and one-on-one support to connect participants (our clients) to community-based services. The primary goal of Wellness Access Specialists is to support the long-term health and wellness of participants by ensuring they can successfully connect to and receive the needed healthcare and wellness services which will then create more stability in their housing. 

Quote

“Transition Projects gave me the opportunity to take a breath... The staff went above and beyond for me – that’s their focus – and helped me find housing, made me stronger to get back on my feet. They not only helped me with housing but supported me on my path to education…to continue pursuing my dreams.”     

Jennifer | Former Participant | Current member of the Transition Projects Board of Trustees

 

“Find the strength to fight your demons… I have faced a lot of tragedies in my early years, and I have been able to not necessarily overcome, but stand in the face of whatever life has thrown at me.” 

Jan | Current Participant | Housed in 2022 after staying at the Banfield Shelter Motel 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Transition Projects is committed to creating and sustaining an equitable organization that is inclusive and representative of the communities we serve. We honor and value the diverse voices, perspectives, and practices offered by program participants (our clients), staff, volunteers, community partners, and our board of directors, relying on this diversity to create innovative approaches to providing services and to creating positive, systemic change. We recognize that our diversity is our strength, and it is critical to advancing our mission and enhancing the well-being of our community.
