Homelessness not only affects the low income and marginalized members of society; it affects all of those who live within a community and requires a community-wide response. Just Compassion seeks to identify avenues to effectively share information and to develop opportunities for discussion and action to meet the challenges faced by all.
Just Compassion is a coalition of religious, service, civic and business organizations that have joined together to network and share resources for creating a safe and hospitable environment and a community centered response to the needs of those without homes and those living in poverty in Tigard, Tualatin and Sherwood.
Below are quick links to the key programs and services that Just Compassion provides within the community.

Watch one of these videos: the first one is a 10 minute introduction, or if time is short, watch the four minute second video which focuses on the property renovation launch. A lot has been accomplished since the project was started in 2017.
