Neighborhood Partnerships is seeking a new team member who will help us bring housing opportunity to more Oregonians. Together, we know we can implement policies at the state level which will expand access to affordable housing, bring stability to people who rent their homes, prevent and end homelessness, and help people access safety and stability through housing. To do this work, we are building a movement of concerned housing providers, service providers, allies, and others across Oregon who know that opportunity begins with a safe, stable place to call home. We are hiring an organizer who can bring together and empower people impacted by our housing crisis, people who have access to opportunity through affordable housing, and people experiencing housing instability and homelessness, to help bring their voices to the state Capitol to create meaningful and lasting change.
