ONE FAMILY’S STORY
SALMA’S SUCCESS STORY
When Kenyan journalist Salma arrived in the U.S. in early 2019, she was faced with the challenges of being a single mother in a place she had never been and where she knew no one. Salma came to Neighborhood House’s 19th Avenue Apartments just a few months after arriving in Portland with her young son. Thanks to her bravery and commitment to making a life for herself and her family, Salma has found housing, stability, and hope. Watch her story below:

SENIOR WEEK COMMUNITY COFFEE
The Partnership Campaign is Neighborhood House’s biggest year-end fundraiser aimed at raising support for its programs in the year to come. This year, we are dedicating one week of the Campaign (December 7-11) to our seniors, who are in desperate need of support – especially now. During Senior Week, all gifts given to the Partnership Campaign benefit our Senior Services. Plus, all gifts up to $5,000 will be matched by an anonymous donor!
Want to learn more about how you can support your aging neighbors? Join us for a Virtual Community Coffee on Tuesday, December 8 at 9:30 a.m. Click here to join us and RSVP!
WANT TO HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS THIS WINTER?

- Old Navy

- Other affordable grocery or department stores
Gift cards can be dropped of or mailed to our main office at:
