Catalyst Partnerships

This organization mobilizes volunteers to do free construction repairs and remodels that benefit under-resourced homeowners and non-profits around the Portland Metro area.

Current Need:

  • Tualatin Project: Catalyst has taken on a home project for Ms. Hikade, a low-income, elderly senior who lives alone in her home with a caregiver. The Catalyst team is looking for 10-15 volunteers the first weekend (July 6-7) for repairs (siding and roof), yard work, and pressure washing, then 15-20 the second weekend (July 13-14) for prep and painting the exterior of the home. 

If this is something you'd like to help out with, you can connect with Catalyst NW directly by clicking "contact". To find out more about the work they've done and are doing, click "learn more".
