Northwest Portland Ministries - Brief Historical Background
Northwest Portland Ministries (NWPM) was founded in 1980 by a group of lay people from churches and synagogues in Northwest Portland as a way of providing assistance to neighborhood residents through coordinated volunteer efforts.

Initial activities included conducting food drives and distributing government food commodities, helping people connect with existing social services, and providing opportunities for neighborhood residents to socialize.
