Verde engages residents, peer organizations, and policymakers about the connection between protecting the environment and building community, advocating and organizing with low-income people and people of color to drive environmental resources into their neighborhoods in response to existing needs. Our outreach team includes staff who serves as the backbone for Living Cully, a collaborative strategy by Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East, Hacienda CDC, Native American Youth & Family Center, and Verde to address the Cully neighborhood’s disparities in health, income, housing, education, community engagement, and natural resources by concentrating environmental investments at the neighborhood scale and braiding those investments with community development resources.
