Fundraise for Staffing at RCP

  • RCP is facing significant staffing cuts for the 2024/2025 school year – but you can donate to help!
  • The Fund for Portland Public Schools is a non-profit that raises funds for staffing positions at schools.
  • A portion of your donation to RCP also supports equity provisions at other Portland schools. Details here: https://fundforpps.org/ppsparentfund

Rose City Park Elementary is facing some significant budget cuts for the 2024/25 year, and will be required to eliminate several positions in the next school year- including two key Vietnamese language positions. We are concerned about the impact this will have on our kids and the school.

Our group has raised $60,000 so far, from businesses and students’ families, to save these positions! We are nearing our goal of $83,000. Can you help us close the gap? Our deadline for fundraising is June 30th.

Make a tax-deductible donation today!

Thank you for supporting our kids!

Multnomah County warming shelters are seeking community volunteers immediately and in the coming days.

Dear neighbors,

During this last winter storm 344 of our neighbors found warmth and safety at our severe weather shelters. But with increasingly dangerous conditions settling over our region, we anticipate that many more people will need these warming resources over the next few nights and days. Please share widely with your neighbors.

Severe weather shelters remain open today, Monday, Jan. 15, through Tuesday, Jan. 16 at noon.

Multnomah County warming shelters are seeking community volunteers immediately and in the coming days. Anyone is encouraged — especially people who have volunteered before and those with experience in human services and health-related settings — to join us.

Passenger Transportation: The three roles in the Passenger Transportation Unit (Driver, Partner-Navigator, Dispatcher) work together to help community members who need a ride to a County warming resource get there safely.
Behavioral Health Specialists (multiple sites): Those who meet the Behavioral Health Specialist requirements can help create a safe and supportive environment for all guests and staff. You can also see all available shift opportunities from this All Positions/Sites Landing Page.
