To help homeless youth and other marginalized people become healthy and self-sufficient. Launched in 1968, Outside In now serves more than 10,000 people a year in Portland and through its mobile clinics and school-based health center in Clackamas County.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Outside In successfully empowered 798 homeless youth to find stability, safety, education and jobs. Graduates from its transitional housing program remained in stable homes with a whopping 92 percent success rate. Its clinics provided 28,000 medical visits.
“My path off the streets wasn’t easy or glamorous, but Outside In never gave up on me. I couldn’t have transitioned to the life I have now—a life I can be proud of—without them.” —Paul, former client
The Benito & Frances C. Gaguine Foundation will match the first $25,000 in G!G donations to Outside In, and Charlie and Darci Swindells will match the next $10,000.
