Mercy Corps Northwest leads all Oregon programs from its headquarters in Portland, Oregon.

Our Portland-based team offers Oregonians access to small business development services – including loans, grants, and education as home of Oregon Women's Business Center. In addition to small business support, we host an AmeriCorps VISTA program that partners with mission-focused organizations in Oregon and a prison and re-entry program at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility. Our client services in Portland are available in English, Spanish and Arabic.

Prison and re-entry

We work with justice-involved Oregonians to teach life skills and support a successful re-entry after incarceration. Our program offers a proven model that reduces recidivism rates – helping to lower prison populations and build fulfilling futures.
