Mission Statement

The people of Neighborhood Pride Team develop opportunities and build sustainable community in Outer Southeast Portland.

Description

Founded in 1994 by a group of dedicated neighborhood women whose vision was to build a better community for SE Portland. Today, NPT offers three core programs: Cmputer Training Program Provides basic and advanced computer classes and job resource and skill training to community residents. Entrepreneurial Training Program Conducts four 10-week interactive Business Start-Up courses per year that help individuals develop a business plan and decide if their business idea is feasible Trillium Artisans Provides training, product design and marketing support to local artisans who make quality art and crafts from recycled and reclaimed materials. NPT serves the Lents, Brentwood-Darlington, Foster/Powell and Mt. Scott/Arleta neighborhoods commonly referred to as Outer Southeast Portland. Our neighborhoods have substantial populations of immigrants from Russia, Ukraine, SE Asia and Latin America. According to the 2000 Census, median family income for our primary service area is 84% of the national median family income and our rates of families and individuals living in poverty are higher than the national average. A 1996 study by the Marshall Caring Community shows that Outer Southeast also suffers from chronically high unemployment and crime rates along with a high occurrence of poverty.
