Home Forward (Housing Authority of Portland) works to assure that the people of the Multnomah County community are sheltered. The VISTA member placed at Home Forward will assist in developing disaster preparedness and resilience programming among low-income households of all abilities in order to mitigate the effects of a major disaster on people experiencing poverty. Major functions will include implementing the Readiness Training Program and culturally specific materials for residents, creating a template for property-specific emergency action plans, and establishing a network of housing providers to increase resilience in our community.
