Impact NW


To help children, families, seniors and adults prosper through a community of support. Impact NW works closely with area schools, businesses, community-based organizations and governmental agencies to create a safety net and springboard for people to improve their quality of life and achieve independence.

Bottom Line for Portland

Impact NW serves 36,000 individuals through anti-poverty services. Ninety-seven percent of children participating in its early childhood programs are now on track with their motor and social skills, and 95 percent of families participating in its housing program have secured permanent housing and remained there.

“Impact NW was the first place that opened its doors to me as a single parent. They’ve done more than find a place for me to live—they’ve been my advocate. They got me on the right track and now my kids are thriving more every day.” —Anthony
