Seeking Donations for the Portland Opportunity Crew


We are once again partnering with our Health and Human Service Department to bring back the Portland Opportunity Crew program, which aims to connect individuals in need with temporary employment opportunities in Portland's parks and open spaces. Social Service Counselors recruit willing workers who are panhandling in our public spaces, and offer them work, complete with transportation, breakfast and lunch, and daily pay. The program has had many successes in connecting vulnerable people with employment, housing, and counseling assistance. The generosity of hundreds of individual donors and local businesses has made this program possible in the past, and additional donations from the public can keep this program going into the fall.  You can watch a video about the program and make a donation here, and you can also make a donation to the program by texting CREW to 91999. Thank you!
