Transition Projects advocates for ending homelessness . Together with partner organizations, we work to advance a shared agenda of justice and equity.
Safe shelter. Fewer than half of people experiencing homelessness in Portland have access to safe shelter. We are leading the charge to ensure that there is adequate shelter for everyone who needs it.
Sexual assault. Sexual assault is both a cause and a result of homelessness. We advocate for service providers and funders to serve survivors of sexual assault.
Women experiencing homelessness. Women experiencing homelessness are under-served and often overlooked. We advocate for programs and initiatives tailored to the needs of women experiencing homelessness.
Equity. People of color are over-represented among those experiencing homelessness and those living in poverty, but are often under-served by social service providers. Justice demands that there is equitable access to resources.
Affordable housing. The Portland metro area is tens of thousands of units short of the affordable housing that we need. We are advocating at the local, state and federal levels for the funding needed to make affordable housing accessible to all.
These organizations offer opportunities to get involved with policy and advocacy.
