Mayor Ted Wheeler congratulates Northwest Pilot Project for 50 years of service to Seniors
Friday, Oct. 4, Northwest Pilot Project (NWPP) will celebrate its 50th Anniversary of providing affordable housing and services for low-income and very low-income seniors (55 and over) in Multnomah county. Mayor Ted Wheeler congratulates and thanks NWPP for providing their caring, compassionate and values-driven service to those most in need, most deserving and most vulnerable.
“Few organizations in Portland have had such a significant impact over such a long time as Northwest Pilot Project. 50 years is an incredibly long time for any organization to stay as vibrant and relevant as NWPP,” Mayor Wheeler said. “Milestones like that are not achieved unless you’re the best in class, and they’re not achieved without devoted, diligent and steady leadership.”
NWPP helps stabilize the housing of about 600 seniors each year. They don’t own or manage housing, instead they leverage their 50 years of relationships with landlords, property managers and community development partners to securing housing for those who are most vulnerable.
Mayor Wheeler will be on hand to personally honor and recognize NWPP for its valuable work in the community for the past 50 years and in the future.
