Why I Am Supporting NWPP!

I want to support solutions that are addressing the houseless crisis in Portland, especially those working with our elders, and NWPP is the right fit for me. As a board member, I am so impressed with the focus and dedication of the staff to the 50+-year-old mission and to have the opportunity to learn about the enormous amount of advocacy work being accomplished to address the issue further "upstream." Like Housecall Providers, NWPP is an asset to Portland's community and I am honored to be part of it.

Snapshot of what makes Northwest Pilot Project great:

NWPP works with very low and extremely low-income seniors in Multnomah County to help them keep and find housing they can afford.

Thanks to the generosity of thousands of individuals and businesses, and through partnerships with area funders, we have provided housing placement, transportation and support to more than 40,000 older adults over the last 50 years. We believe housing is a human right and that every older adult deserves safe, decent housing they can afford

NWPP's Housing Program continued to provide critical housing services to older adults over the last year, despite the added complication of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In fiscal year 2019-2020:

  • NWPP provided housing services to 894 households.
  • Placed 175 seniors into housing.
  • Helped prevent evictions for 233 seniors.
  • Provided housing case management services to 242 households and on-site supportive services to 179 households currently living in affordable housing.
  • Distributed over $230,000 in COVID CARES Relief funds to older adults experiencing housing instability due to the pandemic.
  • Distributed $40,000 to 80 BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) financially impacted by COVID-19 as part of Multnomah County's Food Justice project.
