Supporting Our Community
Charitable Support and Giving
Paris Group Realty, LLC’s purpose is to help individuals and families achieve their dreams and financial goals through homeownership in a healthy environment, with active communities and equality for all. These are more than just hopes and desires – they are fundamental priorities we consciously address every day, and in every aspect of our business.
This year we’re taking a bold new step and challenging ourselves to do even more. From transitioning homeless individuals to housing and homeownership, to empowering our youth and making healthy foods available to all kinds of families in need, we want to lift up as many people and communities as possible in the Portland Metro area and beyond.
Habitat for Humanity Portland Region believes that everyone deserves to have a stable and affordable place to call home. Through homeownership, they are able to create healthy spaces for owners to thrive, while allowing them to build equity and a stable future. Home buyers take an active role in every step of the process, partnerships with local organizations help to improve affordability, and volunteer efforts all contribute to the success of this truly fantastic non-profit.
Transition Projects works to transition individuals from homelessness to housing. Their belief is that housing is a human right, where all are welcome, and everyone should have access to shelter, food, and safety. Their many programs provide support and resources to individuals, including access to case workers, healthcare, and mentorship. Known for their work with veterans, women and people with disabilities, Transition Projects has helped countless individuals in their over 50-year history.
Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. They provide life-changing programs and experiences for youth ages 6-18 that help them grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Their research-based programs are delivered by trained staff and volunteer leaders who focus on holistic youth development, supporting, mentoring, and guiding youth in an affirming, pro-girl, inclusive environment. There, participants learn to value their whole selves, discover and develop their inherent strengths, and receive the support they need to navigate the challenges they face.
Urban Gleaners recognized both the need to reduce food waste, as well as the growing number of children and their families experiencing food insecurity in Oregon. Their solution is to collect fresh food before it goes to waste from a growing list of local restaurants, grocery stores, farms and more. That food is then re-packaged to create wholesome family meals that are distributed via school pantries, mobile markets, summer markets and non-profit pick-ups. A simple and very effective plan to support our communities and create a healthier community for all.
