2023 Holiday Giving Guide

We decided to do things a little differently this year for our gift guide and focus instead on our community here in Portland. Below is a list of just a few of our favorite organizations that we hope you'll consider donating to. Even a small gift can make a difference.

From their website: " PRSG provides refugees and asylum seekers newly arriving in the Pacific Northwest the social capital necessary to transition into a successful life in the U.S. through our Community Wellness, Community Aid and Community Education programs. Each of these area is strengthened by the volunteer and partner organizations fostered through our focus on Community Connection."

From their website: "At the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization, we provide a wide array of culturally specific services that help immigrants, refugees, and other diverse community members thrive."

From their website: "As the largest LGBTQ+ community center in the Pacific Northwest, Q Center proudly serves the LGBTQ2SIA+ communities of Portland Metro and Southwest Washington. Our drop-in and event space on North Mississippi Avenue is a frequent first stop for new arrivals in Portland, and for longtime residents who are newly out or questioning their sexual or gender identity. Q Center also serves as an information hub for friends, partners, community, and family members of LGBTQ2SIA+ individuals."

From their website: "Project 48 exists to provide support to youth experiencing foster care, ages 7-23, by providing essential items and life skills during vulnerable and traumatic transitions."

From their website: "Rose Haven is the only day shelter and community center specifically serving women, children, and gender-diverse people in Portland."

From their website: "Path Home empowers families with children to get back into housing and stay there."

From their website: "Since 1968, Outside In has supported youth experiencing homelessness and other marginalized people as they move toward improved health and self-sufficiency. Driven to meet the changing needs of those it helps, the agency has created an all-inclusive and integrated system of cutting edge and sometimes controversial wraparound services that has transformed and saved thousands of lives over the years."

From their website: "Street Roots is a nonprofit media organization intertwined with the lives of people experiencing homelessness and poverty. We work to make income accessible to the poorest people in our society through work that is low barrier and, at its best, empowering. We advocate for better conditions for people experiencing homelessness, as well as systemic change that lessens poverty and increases access to housing."

From their website: "Dignity Village is a membership-based community in NE Portland, providing shelter off the streets for 60 people a night since 2000. Dignity Village envisioned and created the first Village Model shelter in North America. The Village Model is democratically self-administrated, self-governed, and self-operated with a mission to provide shelter that fosters community and self-empowerment– a radical experiment to end homelessness."

From their website: "Taking Ownership PDX, LLC., a small-but-mighty community collective of contractors, realtors, neighbors, and businesses brought together by Portland musician, activist Randal Wyatt. Together we renovate and revive Black-owned homes that have requested our help, with an emphasis on enabling Black homeowners to age in place, generate wealth and simultaneously deter predatory investors and realtors to deflect the gentrification process. While nothing can undo the decades of harm imposed upon Portland's Black community via deliberate historical redlining, gentrification and systemic racism, Taking Ownership is turning the tide with a commitment to impactful grassroots change in support of the Black home owners of our city."

From our team to you, wishing everyone a very Happy Holiday!
