Stephan Reichard, Executive Director of The Rebuilding Center
Recent Runner-Up in Willamette Week’s Best Portland Non-Profits, ReBuilding Center is one of Portland’s most iconic not-for-profit organizations. ReBuilding Center deconstructs homes, salvaging up to 85% of the materials which are then sold out of its 53,000 square foot warehouse on N. Mississippi Avenue at anywhere from 10-60% of retail. Profits (such as they are) are reinvested back into our community.

ReBuilding Center’s Executive Director, Stephen Reichard, will speak on the role of sustainability as a tool to address issues of equity.

Stacey Gibbins - Program Director of Northwest Association for Blind Athletes
The Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) changes the lives of blind and visually impaired youth and adults with sports throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Our athletes develop belief in themselves. Breaking down barriers and isolation, they become an active part of their schools and communities. Experiencing the power of sports, our participants aspire, excel and have fun.

Kinship House
Kinship House is a non-profit that was founded in 1996 and provides outpatient mental health services to foster and adopted children and their families. We specialize in championing children and families with target interventions during all stages of foster care, reunification, and adoption. In twenty years of providing mental health services, we have served thousands of local children on their journey to the care only a permanent and healthy family can provide. With almost 3,000 children in foster care annually in the tri-county area, our services ensure that foster children successfully find their forever home.

Our mission is to champion the successful permanency of each child who comes to our door. We understand that each individual’s unique history, culture, and needs must be considered as they journey to stable, healthy homes.

Business as a Tool for Social Change
Laura Walker first landed on the African continent in 2008 to explore Egypt’s ancient ruins (that she had dreamed about since discovering them in her art history textbooks) and to volunteer for six weeks with vulnerable children at a rural orphanage in Kenya. This seemingly free-spirited summer of fun soon led to an eye-opening look into child trafficking, the complexities of poverty, and the gaps that exist between short-term aid and long-term sustainable development.

Five years later, Laura founded Amsha, a jewelry and home goods company working with artisans in East Africa, and co-founded Stahili Foundation, an organization focused on children’s rights and education and family reunification, in Kenya.

Honor Flight
Honor Flight of Portland Oregon (HFPO) is one of over 100 regional “hubs” in 42 states participating in the national Honor Flight Network (HFN) program honoring WWII veterans by taking them to Washington, DC to visit their National WWII Memorial. On July 20, 2011 we became an Honor Flight hub, serving the greater Portland area (Clatsop, Columbia, Washington, Multnomah, Hood River Counties), where 80 WWII veterans were then waiting to travel to Washington, DC. During our first 24 months of operation with 6 visits to Washington, we honored 207 WWII Veterans, sharing flights with the Eastern Oregon Honor Flight hub. Effective July 15, 2016, we added Clackamas, Marion, Yamhill, Polk, & Tillamook counties for a total of 10 Oregon counties.
