2016 PDX Charity Golf Tournament: Charities
The most important part of our Charity Golf Tournaments are the charities we support. Here are the three charities we will be supporting for 2016:
Human Solutions helps homeless and low income families build pathways out of poverty We support vulnerable families by building affordable housing, providing shelter and to homeless families, offering employment training individuals with high barriers to living wage employment.
Innovative Housing, Inc. has been providing affordable housing to individuals and families in the Portland region for over 30 years. Our mission is to efficiently and economically develop, preserve, and operate high-quality, affordable housing and to help our residents maintain their housing stability, improve their quality of life, and access opportunities to break the cycle of poverty. IHI’s Resident Services Program provides support to more than 1200 people each year. IHI’s portfolio includes more than 900 affordable housing units, with 116 new units coming online in early 2015.
Housing Independence strives to develop service enriched, quality, affordable, and community-based independent living options for adults with special needs. Providing education and mentoring for their families and advocates, prior to independent living, is a critical component to creating a successful transition. They envision that all adults with special needs will have access to affordable housing options and education to prepare them for successful independent living.
