What We Do

The Problem

We don't have to look far to see the problem of family homelessness — it's happening all around us. The 2019 State Trends in Child Well-Being study conducted by the Annie E. Casey Foundation reports that 27% of Oregon’s children have parents that lack secure employment and 32% live in households where there is a high housing cost burden. In Clackamas County, the Oregon Department of Education reported that 1,542 students were identified as homeless during the 2019-2020 school year, and Washington County still has one of the highest homeless student populations in the state.

Our Approach

Family Promise of Tualatin Valley serves families experiencing homelessness from the Tigard-Tualatin, Sherwood, Lake Oswego and West Linn-Wilsonville school districts. Our network of eighteen civic  and religious organizations help us to provide meals and a supportive community for our guests 365 days per year. 

In addition to working one-on-one with families and individuals, Family Promise of Tualatin Valley advocates for families experiencing homelessness at the city, county, and state levels. We partner with our local community to holistically address the root causes of homelessness. By offering prevention and stabilization services in our community and sheltering and providing case management to those who experience homelessness, Family Promise of Tualatin Valley helps to ensure the long-term independence and economic stability of our guests.
