Women for Success One Year Anniversary Party, June 23

Women for Success Portland is a 100% volunteer-run membership organization that supports Dress for Success Oregon by providing work-appropriate undergarments for disadvantaged women. Since our debut last June, our supporters have revamped the Dress for Success fitting rooms, had makeovers and massages for a good cause, and more! Join us at 5:30 p.m. on on June 23 as we celebrate our first birthday back where it all began—the Living Room Theaters Lounge. Find out how we measured up to our goal of raising $10,000 to provide 800 undergarments for Dress for Success Oregon clients.

Understanding the Federal Debt and How to Tackle it

Achieving Energy Independence with Senator Jeff Merkley

On June 10, Congressman Kurt Schrader will discuss what Congress might do to balance the budget, while also tackling our mounting debt.

In the last decade we have seen dramatic increases in federal deficits. The economic downturn and tax cuts have decreased revenue, while foreign wars and recent stimulus measures have significantly increased spending. A long-term solution – which will likely require both tax reform and a hard look at our current spending priorities – will be necessary to reduce the gap between revenues and expenditures and also to shrink the federal debt.

Community Engagement Affinity Group with Life by Design NW and Hands On Greater Portland

Nearly everyone experiences positive, life-affirming benefits from volunteering.  And for Boomers, community engagement helps to cultivate a greater sense of purpose and connection at a time in our lives when, perhaps, we most desire it.

To assist with finding direction, focus and renewed identity through volunteering, individuals 50+ are invited to a monthly Affinity Group to receive support, ideas and feedback about our volunteer experiences.  We also provide transformational tools and resources for deepening understanding of self and service while cultivating a meaningful connection to the larger scheme of things.

Affinity Groups have two co-facilitators and approximately 8-12 group members.
