JOIN supports people experiencing homelessness to transition into permanent, stable housing. Our model is relationship-based, participant-led, and most importantly, rooted in anti-racism to ensure our programs are equitable. Once we move people into their new home, our Retention Team provides ongoing support to ensure long term stability, as a result 83% of people achieve stability 12 months post move-in.
Bottom Line for Portland
On average, JOIN helps 25 people each week move out of homelessness and into a home of their own. As an organization, we also work upstream on solutions to address the systemic issues that perpetuate homelessness.
Hasson Company Realtors is generously matching donations 2-to-1, up to $5,000, from donors under the age of 36.
"JOIN is changing people’s lives. In the most basic terms, we're providing funds for rent assistance, but it's how we use available funds that create possibilities and a steady foundation. We have a responsibility to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to JOIN, and we follow through with love to ensure our services work for everyone. Whether it's one individual or 20 families, JOIN is giving people the opportunities to improve their lives, and the lives of their families.” - JOIN Worker
