Joy Jones

She/Her | President and CEO

Employer: Transition Projects

Moved Here from: California, prior relocation from Atlanta, Georgia on August 2022

Why did you move here?

I relocated to support housing efforts in Portland and neighboring counties, and to lead an agency that is committed to shelter and permanent supportive housing.

What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?

I want to educate the community about why individuals and families are experiencing houselessness in the region. Understanding the why will help the wider community identify solutions.

What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?

I am interested in hearing from diverse voices in social service, business, education, government, and vocational services – partnership is important.
