Work With Us!

Human Solutions is working to end homelessness and poverty in our community - because everyone deserves a safe place to call home.

Why Human Solutions?

For 30 years, Human Solutions has been working to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty by empowering families and helping them build pathways out of poverty. Our comprehensive programs give people the skills and resources they need to be successful.  Our programs include services for homeless families, eviction prevention, supportive services, employment services, energy assistance, and the development and operation of affordable housing.

Human Solutions is an inclusive, multi-racial and multi-cultural organization working to alleviate the impacts of poverty on people and communities. Our approach to our work counters many the primary forces that make and keep people poor.  We focus our work in East Portland/Multnomah County, one of the most diverse areas in Oregon. Here, many individuals, families and communities have experienced high rates of economic insecurity and residential displacement as a direct result of policies and practices that have historically deprived communities and individuals of land, wealth and basic human rights because of their identity – policies and practices that continue to widen inequity to this day. Diversity, inclusion and equity are fundamental values for Human Solutions, both internally and externally.
