Bienestar builds housing, hope and community for the well-being of Latinxs, immigrants and all families in need.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2020, we provided affordable homes to 2,000 individuals and pulled out all the stops to keep our community safe and stably housed. With the support of donors and funders, we rose to the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing over 500 food boxes to families, supporting over 100 households with rent assistance, answering close to 800 calls on our COVID-19 hotline, and helping about 900 farmworkers apply for the Oregon Workers Relief Fund.
After leaving a crowded and unstable situation, Maria de la Luz Niño found a home for her family at Bienestar. “It was so much better to have our own home, our own place to live,” she said. “It felt like it was our home, and it was a healthy place.”
