SE Uplift & the City of Portland
We are deeply grateful to SE Uplift and the City of Portland for understanding the value of Villages and providing outreach funding to Eastside Village PDX through their 2013 small grants program.
Ride Connection excels at providing responsive, accessible transportation options for seniors and people with disabilities throughout the Portland metro-area. So when it comes to transportation—the most frequently requested Village service—what better partner and mentor could we ask for?
Thanks so much to the following individuals & organizations for their enthusiastic support of the Village movement. We appreciate all the ways you are helping us grow.
