This is a new and much-needed program that has demonstrated the potential to significantly reduce abuses faced by our most vulnerable citizens. While we are a financially stable organization with funds balanced between private funding, fees for service, and a $50,000 grant from Multnomah County, we rely on community support and contributions to keep our doors open.

Your generous contributions will help protect some of the most vulnerable members of our community from abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

Guardian Partners is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID #46-0907112).


Sincere thanks to these partners:
