A Way to Give Back

Oregonians are facing unprecedented hardship with the impact of COVID-19 in our community. As the largest statewide developer of affordable housing in Oregon, Northwest Housing Alternatives serves some of the most vulnerable populations at risk of contracting, spreading, and experiencing life threatening complications from COVID-19. NHA serves seniors, low-income families, communities of color, and people with disabilities throughout the state of Oregon.

In light of the crisis, we have made quick pivots to our programs to support these Oregonians and ensure no one in our properties is evicted due to this crisis. Our costs have gone up dramatically in 2021, while our fundraising ability has significantly decreased. We need your help to be able to continue our work and to ensure the safety of those we serve.


NHA is kicking off our “A Way to Give Back” campaign to address these new challenges. You can help us by donating today and encourage others in your network to join you! We rely heavily on the support of donors like you – we simply could not do this without you. Your donation can change the course of someone’s life, what an incredible gift!

What is the best way to help us reach our goals?

Cash donations are essential as they are flexible and will go toward the organization’s greatest need. However, there are many ways to help the people we serve. We have a high need for school supplies, backpacks, and children’s clothing as well as household items such as sheets, towels and pillows to provide to families staying at the Annie Ross House shelter. 

To donate cash, please visit our donation page.

To purchase items for the Annie Ross House shelter please visit our wishlist.

To donate school supplies, children’s clothing and backpacks please contact Meghaen Anderson at manderson@nwhousing.org or 503-953-5475.


Together we can help keep Oregon families and individuals at risk stay stably housed and connected to vital resources. Thank you for your consideration!

If you have questions, please reach out to Meghaen Anderson at Northwest Housing Alternatives, manderson@nwhousing.org or 503-654-1007 ext. 109


Thanks to our generous donors and supporters!
