Busy Week With Our Partners!

Hey everyone! We just wanted to start the week by sharing how much fun we had with our partners at Rosewood last week! Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest held one of their summer camps for a week, where 5 girls participated in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) and fitness activities as they empowered each other. Portland Parks & Recreation provided 23 youth with free music lessons all week! On Tuesday, we had Story & Snack in the morning where volunteers read a story to 4 kids. Carmen from Project Access NOW was also here and helped new people apply for OHP and navigated 5 people to healthcare services! On Wednesday morning, an instructor from Portland Parks & Recreation led Zumba for 13 people plus the girls participating in Girls Inc.! PSU Business Outreach Program met with clients on Wednesday! Thursday was a very busy day! SOAR Immigration Legal Services provided 21 people with immigration legal services. Central City Concern held an orientation for 6 people to help them get started on doing community service to work towards clearing their fines and fees as well as Project Restart! Guerreras Latinas had 12 Latinx women show up and meet with one another! Skate and Relate spent time with 4 youth and showed them how to skate on ramps in the Rosewood parking lot! Finally, on Friday, we had Legal Services day, where public defenders and judges helped relieve people of their fines and fees in Multnomah county in exchange of community service hours! We served 128 people and cleared a total of about $555,000 in fines as well as expungements! On Saturday p:ear had a free basic bike repair clinic! Shout out to all our partners that help us make this possible and provide these opportunities for the community!
