Help NP say Thank you & Welcome!

Earlier this spring, we shared some very important news that after fifteen years as our Executive Director, Janet Byrd is stepping down from her position this year.  You likely also saw that we announced after a national search, we have hired Carlos David Garcia to be our new Executive Director! Carlos will begin his new role at Neighborhood Partnerships (NP) on Tuesday, September 8.
 
We are so grateful for all of Janet’s vision, work, passion, and brilliance. Over the past fifteen years, you’ve been so supportive of Janet’s leadership – steering us through times of uncertainty, recession, growth, and transformative change.
 
Normally, this would be a moment when we’d be announcing a party to celebrate Janet’s leadership, her incredible work, and this important transition. Unfortunately, due to COVID, a party with all of you and our partners and colleagues is simply not safe or possible. We look forward to days when we can celebrate and connect again in person.
 
Instead of asking you to join an in-person celebration, we’re asking you instead to join us in thanking Janet and welcoming Carlos with a gift to NP. Please help us to share in the excitement of this transition by showing your appreciation for Janet’s fifteen years of work at NP, and welcoming Carlos as our new Executive Director.
 
Your contribution will ensure NP makes this transition smoothly, and continues to advance the critical work of supporting communities across our state to build a movement for economic and housing justice. Consider giving today with a gift of $15, $50, $100 or more. You can give by visiting NP’s website or sending a check to Neighborhood Partnerships office at: 2501 SW 1st Avenue, Suite 120, Portland, OR 97201.

Thanks for your support.
