JOIN : Sarge’s Story

What JOIN does:

Veterans make up 12% of the total street population in Multnomah County. Multnomah County is committed to ending Veteran’s Homelessness, and in service to this goal, have established a robust set of partners and resources to meet the needs of our former service men and women who are sleeping on the streets of our community. 

JOIN is a key partner in this effort. JOIN will continue to do, as we have always done, engage homeless Veterans and help them transition into permanent stable housing.

Sarge’s Story:

Sarge is an Army National Guard Veteran who retired under honorable circumstances after 20 years of service to his country. Without the structure of the Army, he struggled to live well and became homeless, as so many Vets do. 

Sarge was homeless for 20 years when he met one of JOIN’s Outreach Workers and was able to transition back inside.

USAgencies Credit Union Wins Awards at Regional Association Conference

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Northwest Credit Union Association presented USAgencies Credit Union with two prestigious awards at its annual Amplify Convention Awards Banquet last night.

USAgencies Credit Union won a Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Award for the work its staff has done to support their local community. Dora Maxwell was an early leader of the credit union movement. This award is given to credit unions that significantly improve the lives of members and non-members through community outreach. USAgencies’ staff members have given 100 volunteer hours serving more than 1,400 people and raising $10,500 to support various causes. In particular, the credit union used its social media presence and worked with its business partners to raise $3,000 to purchase books for young children.

The credit union also received a Desjardins Adult Financial Education award for its Feast and Forum program, in which staff members visit businesses to provide financial fitness programming during Financial Planning Month and Financial Literacy Month. The award is named after Alphonse Desjardins, who founded the first credit unions in the United States and Canada and who pioneered youth savings clubs and in-school banks.

Tip of the Week : Certified is the Way to Go

Enterprise Car Sales Tip of the Week

Certified is the Way to Go : Buying a pre-owned certified used vehicle provides peace of mind to a buyer, as it signifies that the used vehicle has been inspected to be in optimal condition before being offered as a certified used vehicle. Enterprise Car Sale vehicles are hand picked and go through a 109-point inspection to make sure they are the best certified vehicle around.

JOIN : words from Mandy

What JOIN does:

JOIN operates with the belief that it is the homeless person him or herself who must be the agent of change, not the social worker or agency.  JOIN leverages the strengths, talents, and dreams of the people we work with to help them break the cycle of homelessness and return to permanent housing.  This means listening to people and walking beside them as they navigate a return to safe, stable, and sustainable housing.

Words from Mandy after celebrating her another year of sobriety with her JOIN Retention Worker, Colleen:

“I’m proud of my story because everything that I’ve been through has made me who I am today. I’m happy that my stress right now is coming from my Business Communication class, and that I have things to look forward to like getting married next month and earning my degree! I was pretty much homeless for twenty years, after I started using hard drugs at age 12. I didn’t have any self-respect or pride back then; everything was unconscious decision making to feed my addiction. My apartment changed how I view myself and gave me the control to say “No” to old influences. I’m proud of who I am and the work that I’ve put in to get here.” –Mandy, Business student, artist, and mentor.
