Who We Are
We are a collection of leaders from faith and community-based institutions in Clackamas County. We gather together around the practices of community organizing to leverage our land and our resources for the purposes of the housing needs of our neighbors.
We are rooted in the work of being anti-racist, of acknowledging that the land we are leveraging was first stolen from our indigenous siblings. We are working on understanding that fast and speedy work is never equitable work. We go slow to go far. We go slow to be equitable. We go slow to build a new way of building community. We work together so that all Oregonians might come home.
