Transition Projects, Incorporated is a worthy and critical non profit that serves over 9000 Portlanders as they transition from homelessness to housing. From shelter, meals, showers, phone message serve, computer access as well as couseling and training, they are an amazing support for their clients. For the last 8 years my family and I have volunteered at Transition Projects, Inc. in a variety of ways.Our church and soccer groups made and served meals. Our sons conducted coat drives for their scout projects. I served as a philanthropy liason for a mother daughter organization, National Charity League, and I adopted TPI as my focus. My daughter and friends offered clients home made blankets, dontated silverware packets, made and served meals, conducted toiletry and coat drives, made and donated haunted gingerbread mansions and flower centerpieces and flower pots, and delivered homemade cards and stamps for their clients' use. At the conclusion of their 6 year membership in NCL, over half the graduating class of 2012 listed Transition Projects, Inc as their favorite philanthropy. I help organize a community work day for our local high school and TPI utilizes a group of highschoolers to help with organzing and support for the shelter. The administration and staff is committed, caring and professional and deserves credit for their valued service to better the lives of so many worthy members of our community.
