50 Years of Service

For over 50 years, Transition Projects has delivered life-saving and life-changing assistance to some of Portland’s most vulnerable residents. Whether by helping a homeless veteran and her family find housing, sheltering hundreds of people each night with nowhere else to turn, or opening new pathways to employment, Transition Projects represents an invaluable part of Portland’s social fabric.

Supporting Our Community

Each year, we assist more than 10,000 people experiencing homelessness. In any given year, we help place more than 1,000 people into affordable housing - and then support them in retaining that housing.
