Happy Spring! We’re ready, how about you?
We’re writing today to update you on what we’re up to here at Human Solutions these days. As usual, it’s a lot, so we picked a few highlights:
YOU’RE INVITED! BENEFIT CONCERT @ THE OLD CHURCH
We hope you’ll join us for a terrific concert this Saturday night, March 24th at The Old Church in downtown Portland. Our young Ambassador Board members put together a fun line-up and there’ll be some great raffle items, too! Get your tickets in advance here or buy them at the door (same price).
READING, WRITING, EVICTED: IMPORTANT OREGONIAN SERIES ON HOMELESS STUDENT ISSUE
In case you missed it, back in February Oregonian reporter Bethany Barnes wrote an investigative series about the impact on students of being homeless. You can read the whole series here. At Human Solutions, we work actively with the local school districts where our clients live to promote connection and open communication.
WORK WITH US! WE’RE HIRING.
Human Solutions is a rewarding place to work. We’re hiring for a range of positions right now and encourage you to see if there might be a good fit for you or a friend. Take a look and spread the word!
Supporting Human Solutions couldn’t be easier when you’re already shopping on Amazon, because our Women’s Shelter staff have created a “Wish List” of the things they need most. If you’re wondering what we need and how to help provide it, this is a great way to quick send a much appreciated care package! [Please Note: The delivery location is undisclosed, but it will reach us!]
SAVE THE DATE: NEW 30TH ANNIVERSARY GALA & AUCTION DATE
We’re planning a big party to celebrate our 30th Anniversary – and we shifted the date to make it the best one yet. The NEW date is Saturday, November 17, 2018 (it had been April 7, 2018). Please mark your calendars now, and we’ll be back to you this summer with details. Here’s a link to learn more – including how to sponsor the event and donate to our auction. See you this fall!
Thanks for reading and for always supporting Human Solutions and the wonderful folks we serve.
