SMYP Community Project: Fortify House
SMYP is an excellent way for young professionals ages 20-39 to collaborate and get together with like-minded professionals. Join us for a community volunteer project in support of…
Transitional Youth: a non-profit that works to bring hope and healthy transformation to at-risk youth in Oregon and Washington. It’s estimated there are 500 homeless youth in downtown Portland alone. There are hundreds more across the metro area and even more aging out of foster care and other youth agencies. By providing outreach, support, and housing to homeless and at-risk youth, TY seeks to transform both hearts and lives.

“Fortify House” is a 140-year-old farmhouse on a lovely piece of property located in the Eastern rolling hills of Wilsonville, which has been dedicated to TY’s use for the next 15-years. It serves as a residential home for at-risk young men and a respite center for TY staff. Teams of volunteers have been busy cleaning and remodeling the home since early 2019; and last Fall, Catalyst Partnerships NW converted the basement into a gathering and workout space for the young men. We all had such a great experience working together, that all of Catalyst’s tools & trailers are now stored in Fortify House’s outbuildings!
