SR opens satellite office on Portland’s east side

Today marks a great day in SR history— with the opening of the organizations first satellite office at 1435 NE 81st Street. The new office will serve a new vendor population, while offering vendors that are already established and sleeping outdoors or in low-income housing to access the newspaper closer to home. The new target territory will be from 39th Ave. to Gateway, Columbia Ave. to Woodstock. Look for new vendors in a neighborhood near you.

SR is partnering with JOIN, a non-profit homeless agencies who recently relocated to their new refurbished offices on 81st. For directions to the new SR and JOIN offices go here. SR would also like to thank Visions Into Action, the United Way of Columbia-Willamette, and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development for funding the planning and support for the new satellite office. We would also like to thank Meyer Memorial Trust, who just last week announced they will be funding the new office through 2010. Look for an open house sometime in the near future when we are more established.
