Join is an incedible link to our homeless individuals in Portland. They stretch every dollar as far as it can go and it is amazing what they accomplish. Saying no isn't an option, they find a way. Wish more non-profits could be as productive as Join.

Join is an organization that does amazing things and continues to do amazing things at all hours of the night and day. Their objective is to end homelessness and they make every effort to help those who are homeless find subsidized housing and a new start to life. The staff at JOIN are there for every kind of person solving every possible problem that comes up. JOIN staff quickly become family and that is the definition of commitment. If there were more groups in this country like JOIN, things would be a little easier to handle.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that everyone rolls their sleeves up and works hard toward helping people. From the Executive Director down, everyone chips in and doesn't look at their title. Great place to work and great people to be around.

JOIN partners with people experiencing homelessness and helps them rebuild a system of support to move forward on their journey of recovery. The staff do this through developing authentic relationships with the people they serve, their friends. The feeling of non-judgement, partnership, empathy, understanding, and support permeates the space at JOIN and spreads throughout its community. JOIN's approach is unique in Portland and their success is proof that peoples' lives can change when we create space for them to heal. It is the perfect vision of how I would like to see social services provided-- one where everyone is treated with dignity and respect for the simple fact that they are a human being.

I became aware of JOIN through Marc Jolin, the executive director. He invited me to take a look at their work. That was 3 years ago. I was then, and continue to be, in awe of the work that gets accomplished there. I think because the staff and board focuses on personal relationships rather than broad policy, they are able to effectively identify what will really help folks in the moment, and get them to that place. I have never worked with another organization that has as much spirit and dedication. I am currently on the Board Of Directors, and am also very impressed with the low overhead and the focus on getting resources to the folks they serve versus the organization itself.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen first hand how someone's life can be changed just by someone taking a chance on them and their success. I have heard many stories from folks that they have helped outlining how other organizations put barriers up, and how JOIN did not.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I always have fun when I interact with the staff. They have a great way of doing their jobs with humor and dedication.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create and manage housing so that they could immediately offer permanent housing to folks, and not have to rely only on subsidized housing or private market landlords.
