Want to Help Make a Difference?

Human Solutions counters the forces that keep people and communities in poverty by building relationships and assets that create opportunity – today and for future generations.

We partner with people and communities impacted by poverty so they can achieve long-term housing and economic security. We invest in affordable housing and community assets that contribute to strong, inclusive neighborhoods. We advocate with our community for policies and investments that expand housing and economic opportunity, eliminate wealth inequality and end poverty.

East Portland and wider East Multnomah County, Oregon, is our home and the heart of our investments, advocacy and programs.

Human Solutions envisions vibrant, healthy neighborhoods where all people can share in the security, hopes and advantages of a thriving, supportive community.

Human Solutions operates as a nimble, financially strong organization driven by our passion, strategic goals and guiding principles.

Diversity, inclusion and equity are fundamental values for Human Solutions, both internally and externally. Human Solutions has an anti-opppression diversity committee, which serves as a sounding board for new internal policies and procedures to make sure that we’re taking into account diversity and inclusion. It also helps with diversity-related projects, such as coordinating staff diversity trainings and providing ongoing input into our equity work.

As of December 15, 2021, Human Solutions will require that all of its employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved medical or religious exception and accommodation plan as a minimum qualification for their position.

HSI adopted this policy to support the health and well-being of employees, program participants, volunteers and our broader community from the risks associated with COVID-19.

All newly-hired employees after the effective date of this policy must provide proof of compliance with this policy for their employment to be approved and begin. Candidates for employment who are fully vaccinated may begin employment immediately upon accepting an employment offer. Candidates for employment who are not fully vaccinated may receive a conditional offer of employment, which may be accepted only after the candidate becomes fully vaccinated or an approved exception and accommodation plan has been put into place. HSI may establish a deadline for the candidate to become fully vaccinated before the conditional offer expires.
