On behalf of the Verde staff, board, and community, thank you for your support! This past year has been transformational for our organization. We’ve grown in many ways: read about it all in our very first annual report.
We completed construction of Cully Park, led an effort to secure the City of Portland’s first ordinance to protect vulnerable mobile home park residents from displacement, and passed the Portland Clean Energy Initiative, creating an annual fund of an estimated $30 million for renewable energy projects that support low-income communities and communities of color.
As an organization, we continue to innovate and perform in building environmental wealth in our communities and prevent displacement as those investments are made.
