Campus Announcement

Since our inception in 2010, the mission of Just Compassion has been to provide a community-centered response to address the needs of unhoused and marginalized individuals. Whether hosting shelters, providing meals, or offering laundry services, our team of faithful staff and volunteers has always been committed to extending a helping hand to those who need it most.

While we have come a long way, our efforts to bring compassion and connection throughout Washington County has just begun. We are thrilled to announce the construction of our new Just Compassion Campus! This expansion is thanks in large part to Rep. Dacia Grayber and her team for securing $4 million in funding as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

“Our guiding light in this process was to fund local projects that would provide the most support to those with the greatest need at this time. From supporting transitional housing development to funding food security programs, our offices are proud to have approached this process with equity, care, and compassion in mind. Oregon is on its way back, and as your state legislators we are committed to supporting our districts in transformative and equitable ways as we turn the page on the pandemic.”

Since buying the property on Hall Blvd. in Tigard, our vision has always been to utilize the full potential of the property, including the adjacent lot near the Resource Center. With funding from ARPA, we can finally make this dream come true by creating our new Campus! The larger footprint provides us the ability to offer an even greater depth of resources and services to those experiencing houselessness. The expansion will add transitional housing and bolster current resources, like shelter space, meals, laundry and additional programs. We are extremely grateful to be given this opportunity, but also recognize the tremendous responsibility.


We broke ground on construction in Fall of 2023 and expect the project to be completed in 2025. However, in order to reach this goal, we need your help. While ARPA secured us a majority of the funds, we still have a gap as you can see in our financials below. We are asking our community to help us bridge that gap to make the Campus a reality! You can help by:


  1. Donating directly to Just Compassion

  2. Spreading the word about Just Compassion to your friends and colleagues

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at We are humbled and grateful for all the support over the years – we couldn’t do this work without you!
