Vision and Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to address the diverse needs of the homeless population in Portland and surrounding communities. Our work involves collaboration with local organizations dedicated, in whole or in part, to addressing the needs of the homeless. We’re dedicated to educating the public, private and nonprofit sectors about the nature, extent and impacts of homelessness on the city and area, and what they can do to help.

Vision & Values

Oregon Harbor of Hope was founded to create comprehensive solutions for transitioning Portland’s chronically homeless to healthy, productive lives in permanent housing.

We’re dedicated to helping our most disadvantaged neighbors gain access to safe, humane places to dwell and the essential services they need to not just survive but thrive.

We’re focused on addressing the most urgent and unmet needs of Portland’s homeless community. Our approach catalyzes the local business community with a plan of action that’s executed in collaboration with local government, civic and nonprofit partners.

As longtime business residents of the downtown corridor, every day we witness the homeless crisis. We’re glad to join Oregon Harbor of Hope in support of its vision and work to transition people to the next step of care,” said Von Summers, community relations manager for NW Natural.
