Metropolitan Family Service

Social Purpose Works is recruiting for a fundraising professional to develop a fundraising plan for Professional Business Development Group.

PBDG’s primary purpose is to improve the business conditions in the construction industry by increasing Preparation, Competitiveness and Relationships. PBDG members are women and minority construction contractors and professional services firms in the construction industry that share PBDG’s goal. PBDG was organized by its members with the recognition that, despite years of efforts, DMWESB (Disadvantaged, Minority-Owned, Women-Owned, Emerging Small Business) construction and professional services contractors in the construction industry remain greatly under-represented which negatively impacts the productivity, efficiency, and vitality of Oregon Contractors and the construction industry as a whole.

As a 501c6 trade association for minority-owned, women-owned and certified firms in construction. PBDG operates a technical assistance program through its Foundation.

The PBDG Foundation is a new 501c3 nonprofit organization that operates the Construction Business Training And Plan (TAP) Center. The Center provides wrap-around, construction-specific, technical assistance services to meet participants where they are and build a long-term foundation for their business. Staff also work with other nonprofit organizations and business community partners to provide owners with access to valuable resources. The TAP Center is available to meet the needs of minority and women contractors and professional service firms (consulting, design, general services, architecture and engineering). Businesses do not have to be members of PBDG to utilize this resource.

Mission Statement

Metropolitan Family Service helps people move beyond the limitations of poverty, inequality and social isolation. We serve children, families and older adults in the tri-county area. MFS is dedicated to building stronger communities by providing services, connecting people with resources, and offering meaningful and rewarding volunteer opportunities.


Metropolitan Family Service (MFS) volunteers serve in various capacities, depending on their areas of interest and abilities. Volunteers participate in on-going opportunities in one of three focus areas: helping children succeed, strengthening families and their connections to the community, and helping older adults and persons with disabilities live independently. We create opportunities that bridge generations and inspire everyone to live their best life. Additionally, MFS is the sponsor of RSVP in Multnomah County, providing meaningful volunteer opportunities for adults age 55+. With your support we are building a community that cares.
