Our Mission

MCNW's mission is to assist all low-income populations throughout Oregon and in areas of Washington State by increasing their economic self-sufficiency and community integration through microenterprise development and self-employment. MCNW's mission provides a domestic context to the parallel mission of our parent organization, Mercy Corps, which is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.

  • Improve income

  • Promote community integration
  • Stabilize housing
  • Build enduring small-business success
Our Values

As an organization, we value:

  • The potential of people to improve their lives.
  • Being innovative, entrepreneurial and relevant.
