About Lift Urban Portland
2701 NW Vaughn, Suite 102, Portland, OR 97210, US
Lift Urban Portland’s mission is to reduce hunger and improve the lives of low-income residents in northwest and downtown Portland.
Lift Urban Portland formerly called Northwest Portland Ministries was organized in 1983 at the request of Friendly House to recruit volunteers from the community to serve unmet needs. Although the bulk of volunteers come from area congregations, Lift Urban Portland is not a religious organization. A fundamental tenet of Lift Urban Portland is a respect for people of all faiths and a commitment to work together to help our neighbors in need.
