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:

  • Volunteers to assist Beaverton woman in moving furniture to renovate her apartment. Entire process should take two days to complete. 8-10 volunteers needed to move furniture in and out of bedrooms. 6-8 volunteers to help remove and install flooring.

  • Volunteers are also needed for the same project, but to be a loving community to come alongside Liz for a couple of days while renovation and change is happening in her apartment.

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

the media foundation 

The Media Foundation provides funding to the local nonprofit community by converting in-kind media donations (CDs, DVDs, books, video games, software, etc.) into operating capital through the use of a free mobile app. These donations are processed by volunteers and staff and sold online through websites such as Amazon, eBay, Alibris,, and others. Profits from these sales go directly to their nonprofit partners like Safe Families For Children, Transitional Youth, Periokos, Love Inc. Tigard, etc. 

Current Need: 

  • Volunteers to help with cataloging, cleaning, sorting, prioritizing, and filing the book, CD, DVD, video game, and software donations received.
