Help us Soar! Donate to Soar with Us 2017 Auction and Gala

Human Solutions believes that every family deserves a safe place to call home.  We provide an array of critical services to families in Multnomah County: emergency shelter, rapid re‐housing, affordable housing, employment programs, as well as homelessness prevention services such as short‐term rent assistance. To help us continue to provide these services, we’re hosting Soar with Us, our annual auction and gala, on Saturday, April 8, 2017.  We are asking you to support our important work again this year by providing a donation (gift certificate, item, or service) for our auction.

Please use this Donation Form to let us know how you can help.

2016 was a very successful year thanks to supporters like you!

  • 442 households encompassing 1,389 individuals (592 adults and 707 children) were no longer homeless
    due to our rapid rehousing and permanent supportive housing programs.
  • 35,661 people in 11,530 households received utility assistance to keep the lights, heat, gas, and water on
    and help reduce the risk of eviction
  • 678 people received skills assessments and/or training for a living wage career in our five employment
    programs
  • 88% of formerly homeless families who received housing assistance were still successfully housed and
    paying rent on their own 12 months later.

We have some ambitious goals for 2017, and need your help to ensure their success.
