To help low-income and homeless families and individuals gain self-sufficiency by providing affordable housing, family-support services, job-readiness training and economic development opportunities.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Human Solutions helped 473 families (1,474 individuals) secure housing. Eighty-nine percent maintained their housing when contacted one year after all services and subsidies ended, 890 individuals with significant barriers to employment received job training assistance, and eviction prevention support was provided to 336 households (1,212 individuals).
“I cannot thank Human Solutions enough for their help. By helping me find and maintain housing, I was able to build a foundation for a new life. I now have a job I enjoy, and my children are safe. After many dark years, we are thriving.” —Crystal, service recipient
