Historic Parkrose strengthens community vibrancy through equity and economic opportunity. Our community is an urban neighborhood on Northeast Portland’s urban fringe. The VISTA member placed at Historic Parkrose will assist in developing the Community Response Funding Pool, a program that unites service providers and resources to create a flexible pathway for houseless and housing-insecure residents to stabilize and re-enter the workforce. Major functions will include developing a volunteer recruitment and training process for strengths-based houseless outreach, creating community stakeholder forums, and designing a Community Response Funding Pool to support district-level solutions to houselessness.
