A gift of $25 can replace a birth certificate for a child whose family is transitioning from homelessness.

Families fleeing dangerous and overcrowded living situations often lose or are forced to leave behind important documents. Children are unable to enroll in school, connect with the Oregon Health Plan and receive services to recover from trauma without proper identification.

Northwest Housing Alternatives is efficient and effective; $0.90 of every dollar donated goes directly to our programs. We use the remaining $0.10 to manage organizational finances and to raise more funds.

If you have any questions about this gift opportunity, please contact Megan Dorwin at 503 654 1007 x109 or

Northwest Housing Alternatives works with families, children, and older adults who need brief but imperative services to ensure their housing stability and to help them avoid homelessness. Because crisis is inherent in the work we do, we appreciate the flexibility to use donations where they are needed most.
