HomeAid Portland

Helping to change the lives of homeless persons in the Greater Portland area.
In the Portland Metropolitan area there are 3,000 to 5,000 homeless persons with only 900 shelter beds citywide. Portland has far more people in acute need than available resources to help them.  HomeAid Portland helps meet the needs of temporarily homeless individuals and families in five Oregon counties: Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah, Washington and Yamhill. 

Established under the Home Builders Association of Metro Portland (HBAMP) and its foundation the Home Builders Foundation of Metropolitan Portland, HomeAid Portland is a much-needed resource in the Portland area.  "The need for temporary housing is an issue we are absolutely passionate about and one that the building industry can help remedy," said David Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer of the HBAMP.  "Through HomeAid's efforts to harness the building industry's time, talent and materials, we are poised to help even more local men women and children." 

Rudy Kadlub, Chairman of the Foundation, and CEO of Costa Pacific Communities, oversees the HomeAid program. "Non-profit social service agencies with job training, education and life skills programs consistently have waiting lists of people who desperately need help; they simply do not have the housing resources needed to provide the services. HomeAid Portland helps to fill that gap." 

The plight of temporarily homeless individuals stems from a variety of causes including domestic violence, unemployment, catastrophic illness or crisis pregnancies.  HomeAid Portland focuses on giving local men, women and children a better chance at a new start.
