Bienestar builds housing, hope and futures for the wellbeing of Latinx, immigrant, farmworker and other low-income communities. Our stable homes, youth enrichment, leadership programs, and asset building services create a foundation for each family’s journey to prosperity.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2019, we provided stable housing to 2000 individuals. Our resident leaders visited 485 families in their homes to connect them to social services. We trained 12 Latina leaders and supported them as they advocated for their communities. 100% of graduating seniors in our postsecondary prep course are college-bound.
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.”
