Mission Statement

Our Vision
Our vision to build a Resource Center will allow us to employ more people and serve a larger part of the community that needs assistance. We are not a City or State agency

Our Mission
To create better lives for women and children. . . The cornerstone and founding principal of our mission that we firmly believe in, is to "Love Yourself First".

Description

The Portland Women’s Expo Foundation is a 501-(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our goal is to raise 1 million dollars by 2015 to build a Resource & Employment Training Center for Women. This Center will provide emergency shelter, domestic and substance abuse services. The Employment Training Center will create employer partnerships and provide targeted skills training to put women back to work.

We produce two events per year that are fundraisers to help us achieve the end goal; The Portland Women’s Expo and The Portland Women’s Walk. Both events are produced and managed by a small staff of women with various backgrounds. The common theme shared between staffers is understanding what it’s like to be on unstable footing, and then finding solid ground with The PDX Women’s Expo. We can say with confidence that we are adding jobs to the economy and providing focus to someone who may need a guiding hand.
