Our Friends Speak About Street Roots
Street Roots advocates for those folks who don’t have a voice and you and your team work diligently, and with great humanity, humility and grace to bring those stories center stage for food, housing, healthcare and social justice. Portland is lucky to have an organization like Street Roots to help us understand the complexities of homelessness, politics and the community.- Tamara Pedrojetti, Community Relations Manager and SafeLink Program Manager, CareOregon
