In 2018, Our Executive Director Rachelle Dixon, founded our parent organization, Advancing Collective Equity also known as ACE. Opened Doors is a program of Advancing Collecting Equity in Portland, Oregon.
Open Doors is piloting a culturally specific “Tiny Home” initiative to provide Black and Indigenous peoples from the houseless community temporary shelter in a "Tiny Home" on wheels during the Winter of 2021.
Each Tiny Home is a mobile space on wheels, with a small kitchen, bathroom, sleeping quarters and storage space - the necessities required to provide safety, stability, privacy and improved quality of life for participants. Tiny houses are prioritized for placement with Black and Indigenous occupants and as well as the Homeowners who have agreed to be host for one year.
While participants seek permanent housing they will receive: Financial Counseling, Classes on Budgeting, their Credit Score, a Credit-Builder Loan, assistance reinstating Drivers Privileges, Expungement Assistance, a Rental Reference and other support to remove the barriers to permanent housing.
For the housed community every First Sunday, we mobilize a team of passionate and skilled volunteers to help our houseless neighbors get into "Tiny Homes" and make an impact in the lives of others. Join us and see what can build together when love for community leads.
We Love US!
Are you one of the helpers? The Northwest is full of organizations and people who want to address houslessness in their neighborhood. We work to help the people providing services to the houseless connect the people who need them in the BIPOC community. Connect with community in new ways.
