Goodbye to Kari!

Kari Lyons Eubanks is leaving her position as Director of Welcome Home Coalition.  During her time with Welcome Home Coalition, Kari worked with Coalition members to draft a framework for Metro's Affordable Housing Bond and as a member of the Yes on 26-199 Campaign Steering Committee, she played a key role in ensuring the success of this ballot measure.

We wish Kari all the best in her future and thank her for her work!
The Welcome Home Steering Committee will be hard at work looking for our next leader to ensure that our important work continues. In the meantime, know that we are committed to ensuring the success of the Metro affordable housing bond, the continued success of the Portland housing bond, and will be working with all of you to continue to find ways to ensure that everyone in our community has a safe,  affordable place to call home.
During this transition, Shannon Singleton, the Executive Director of JOIN which fiscally sponsors Welcome Home, and other Welcome Home Steering Committee members will be continuing to move the important work of Welcome Home forward.

Metro Housing Bond Updates
Thank you all again for all of your hard work to help pass M26-199 and ensure that more of our friends and neighbors have a roof over their heads. We know that we could not have done this without all of your tireless efforts and we are so grateful for everything you did.
While the passage of the ballot measure is a huge step, we know that implementation is equally important. We looking forward to continuing to work with Metro, local jurisdictions and community partners to ensure those bond dollars are used wisely and help our most vulnerable community members. We are excited to see next steps already being taken to ensure robust community engagement, the advancement of racial equity, and innovative methods to get homes built quickly.
Welcome Home Coalition is excited to partner in this work and we look forward to working alongside all of our members and partners in implementing this Bond!
