Portland has many religious and nonprofit organizations that connect with people in need to do good and compassionate work.
Archdiocese of Portland by Jack Kerfoot
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Portland is active in numerous compassionate programs including the development of low-income housing and providing aid to immigrants and refugees through Catholic Charities of Oregon. Todd Cooper, Director Special Ministries of the Archbishop was kind enough to take time from his schedule to educate me on the churches efforts to assist people in need in the greater Portland area.
Todd believes the homeless crisis is complex and goes beyond developing low-income housing. Some men and women on our streets may require drug and/or alcohol rehabilitation before they are able to live in independent housing. Others on our streets may require treatment for medical or mental illness. There is no simple solution to solve our city's homeless crisis.
The Archdiocese of Portland welcomes all migrants and refuges and provides resettlement and immigration legal services through Catholic Charities. The church also has programs to aid people born outside the United States that are survivors of human trafficking within the United States.
The Archdiocese works closely with the City of Portland, most recently on the Cathedral Village, a new rental housing development that will serve some of Portland's most vulnerable residents. The church also collaborates with other faiths to do good for the people in need in the Portland area.
If I am fortunate enough to gain the support of the Portland voters in the 2020 campaign for City Council, it will be my goal to collaborate with the Archdiocese of Portland on programs that will aid the people in need in our city.
