Living in Portland: a new series

I’m beginning a new category of postings on this site, Living in Portland. I’m reasonably engaged in the community I live in, whether that means being politically active or shopping locally as often as possible. While not really nonprofit in nature, these activities reflect my values both ethical and aesthetic. In this new series, I’ll […]

Job Announcement: Asset Building Manager at NPF

This is not turning into a nonprofit employment blog, but since I did recently write about the Neighborhood Partnership Fund and the awesome work they are doing with IDAs in Oregon, I thought I’d pass this along. The Neighborhood Partnership Fund, an OR nonprofit, is seeking a full time Asset Building Manager to focus on […]

The O covers UFW/Beef Northwest at last

It’s old news for me, as I first wrote about this last August, but hey…nice to see the Oregonian has taken an interest in these farmworker happenings. My own September 07 interview with John Wilson, one of the family owners of Beef Northwest, is here. I remain agnostic on the issue, but I can say […]

Ever wish you could decide how your tax dollars were spent?

Well, here’s some news. In Oregon, thanks to the Individual Development Account (IDA) Initiative, you can. If helping low-income people improve their lives by saving toward home ownership, education, and entrepreneurship goals sounds like something you wish your tax dollars did, this is your chance. You can decide. And you can even get a credit […]

Oregon Health Plan reservation list opens today, sort of

Adults who believe they may be eligible for OHP Standard can throw their names in the hat online; by mail, fax or in person; or by phone. [Forms: English, Spanish] More details here. Since it’s a State of Oregon website, there is of course no clear link to the online form as of yet; there […]

Oregon Health Plan to accept new adult enrollments

For a limited time, the Oregon Health Plan will accept new adult enrollments, according to a January 7th DHS news release. OHP will be enrolling approximately 5,000 people into the Standard plan in order to replace members lost by attrition and bring the total number of enrollees back up to average levels. This is the […]

Roseburg, Oregon homeless shelter for teens gets front page writeup

First, I am running way behind around here. The dearth of posts has to do with fun holiday activities and a few recent trips. That to say, I wish I had posted this a week and a half ago. I was home in Roseburg, Oregon, visiting my parents for the holidays, and noted that the […]

Rural Oregon homeless programs lose out in 2007 funding cycle

HUD-funded Rural Oregon Continuum of Care programs took a huge cut in funding in the recently announced 2007 CoC awards, dropping to $552,600 for the July 2008-June 2009 funding period [link to spreadsheet containing totals for state], compared to the current funding level of $1,473,673. At the same time, funding for homeless programs in urban […]

Since when was Oregon Idaho’s Portugal?!

From our own Oregonian, this lovely advertising image: Sigh. Still, the Stephen Colbert poster in my office is there to stay. My heart belongs to you, Stephen! Always! Even if I’m late to this particular party. Sorry for the post unrelated to nonprofitness. At least it’s kind of political.

Free books from Ford Family Foundation

The Ford Family Foundation, with which many people in the Oregon nonprofit scene are familiar, has a great resource for Oregon and Siskiyou County, California residents who “want to make a difference in their communities”: a list of some thirty books on leadership, effective organizations, community collaborations, and youth, family, and schools. These are available […]
