Our Health Matters
A Catalyst for Change, Leading by Example…
(EST. 2021) We are a new(er) 501c3 in Portland, Oregon called OHM (Our Health Matters).
We are currently organizing a community fundraiser that will be held in PDX cleaning up trash, and graffiti, filling and re-distributing Sharps containers, as well as using our company truck for continuous dump runs this September 25, 2023. We will be talking with the underprivileged while helping homeless/addicts with referrals and handing out donated essentials. We will help them (as best as they allow us to) focus on how establishing goals for better ways of living utilizing state assistance.
We have support from the Oregon senate, community leaders, Nonprofits, anonymous residents, family members, and medical providers who believe in us.
Currently: Our Nonprofit caters to the Homeless and addicts directly in SE Portland. Our Street team cleans up needles and garbage in the pathways every day along SE Powell Blvd public access pathways. We help with outside referrals to Lasko Refuge (Sober Living in SE Portland) as well as refer to LCSW’s @ Central City Concern, Hooper Detox, CODA, and Allied.
We have helped lots of people gain housing by living in our garage and have cleaned up many needles/garbage while distributing SHARPS disposal containers. Talking and smiling while doing so, building rapport with each camp and person we help.
FREE Reiki in Laurelhurst Park, every 3rd Saturday!
We would appreciate it if you or your company could help in any way please by donating anything in stock that is in excess, especially goods or gift vouchers for services, and essentials (packaged food items or socks, clean winter clothing, etc.). Donations may be anything in abundance that you or your company may have that offers help to others. We will make sure the right person receives it. We will even pick it up.
All donations will be documented on our website and the donor will receive promotion on our website/Social media as well as on our print materials and live feed shout-outs. Print materials will be published in the Newspaper and we will be going door to door with personalized introductions, (politely) hanging fliers everywhere we can, and posting (politely) in public forums to introduce our services to the public. We are here to talk to the Homeless when your company or family has had enough. We will keep the neighborly bond while helping them with their goal setting.
Donations come with a reward! We will dedicate time to focus on your business/ area of concern while showing results on paper for all services rendered. Sustaining members will receive unlimited services and become active directors. 1-time donors will receive contracted services and not be eligible for membership. Incentives are given to all donors. We allow the donor to choose where our services and donations shall be focused based on contribution size. All sponsors over $500 receive a Plaque that is certified by OHM with our nonprofit seal/ stamp recognizing your good deeds officially.
Anything your company can donate will be documented and your target area will be serviced by our street team and cleaned up regularly (after the fundraiser and before). Please make a pledge by sending us an email to email@example.com. We will pick up pledges the following business day.
Sustaining Donors will become active OHM Incorporated members allowed to vote on operation decisions and receive the biggest presence for our marketing posts.
Positivity establishes connectivity, which creates trust and respect. This approach will be the only way to truly help others move forward with their goals in life.
OHM is an LGBTQi affiliate that focuses on Energy work through Reiki, Yoga, and Alternative herbs. We use 100% holistic healing methods from the Ancients while teaching harm reduction. We are here to humbly serve and gracefully use our expertise where it is needed most (on a street level)! We approach, we assess, and we truly help with referrals, energy building, Energy work/cleanup, and on-site peer mentoring (to help the homeless move from concerned sponsors' business locations, talking and acting nicely instead of harassing like the Police and neighbors do who are fed up) We act as a neutral party to solve conflict within neighbors also not just the homeless. With your company's help, we can build our nonprofit and cater to serve many more who desperately need us in SE/N/NE Portland, OR.
I hope this note reaches my neighbors and local businesses in due time and in a respectful manner.
