Review for Transition Projects, Inc., Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been priviledged to volunteer at Transition Project's Bud Clark Commons since opening. I walked by it everyday to work and home during construction, and knew it had potential to be Portland's most progessive programs and facilities for the less fortunate. Showers, restrooms, lockers, clothing, shoes, laundry, mail boxes, kitchen, hair shop and a computer lab are available to walk-ins. And that's just the day center. There is also short term housing for 90 men on another floor, and 130 studio apartments on upper floors for the city's most vunerable and needy. I started out in the hygene center a few evenings a month handing out everything from towels to tampons. I am now in the computer lab once a week and I might assist visitors filling out job or housing applicaptions on-line, to goggling area codes they need to complete submissions. And last night I even helped with this kid's tie. No, not an interview, but I wonder how his date went?
