Impact NW and YWCA of Greater Portland are proud members of the Fair Shot for All Coalition. These two organizations have a shared management agreement and support each other in fulfilling their complimentary missions.
Impact NW’s mission is to help people prosper through a community of support. Impact NW provides an array of antipoverty programs, serving people across the lifespan with programs for all ages from infants to seniors.
The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism and empower women. The YWCA has programs serving survivors of domestic violence, senior citizens, incarcerated mothers, and specifically addressing social justice.
The Social Justice Program compliments the array of direct services with a multi-pronged approach that includes legislative advocacy (supporting gender, racial, and economic justice initiatives), community engagement, and community education (facilitating public and private trainings on social justice issues). We are honored to work with other members of the Fair Shot Coalition to eliminate racism and poverty, and empower women.
