Description

Please come in and shop at both Stark and Halsey on Sunday, July 30 because 10% of our day's sales will benefit JOIN: connecting the street to a home.

About JOIN: connecting the street to a home:

"JOIN exists to support the efforts of homeless individuals and families to transition out of homelessness into permanent housing. Our efforts are directed at individuals sleeping outside or in their car in the Portland Metro area. Our service provision is not dependent on age, gender, race, ethnicity, faith, culture, language, sexual identity, specific diagnosis, or identifiable issue.

JOIN is committed to preserving the dignity, humanity, and uniqueness of each person that we work with on their path back to housing stability. To achieve this, we will:

  • strive to ensure that all of our programs and services are equitable in both access and outcomes regardless of a person’s race, ethnicity, faith, culture, language, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or family status,
  • operate with the knowledge that certain communities are significantly over-represented among those experiencing homelessness in Portland/Multnomah County and that there are disparities in outcomes for members of those communities,
  • pursue effective strategies and devote dedicated time and resources at every level of our organization to address these disparities.

These efforts are performed in service to the vision of a community where outcomes cannot be predicated based on a person’s perceived identity."

JOIN: connecting the street to a home - JOIN exists to support the efforts of homeless people - families and individuals - to move off the street into permanent housing.

JOIN is focused on creating a community where if homelessness exists, it is limited to a short-term circumstance rather than a long term and chronic condition.
