Elders In Action has touched the lives of thousands of older adults in the Portland Metro area. Our volunteers work with individuals who feel frustrated and overwhelmed by complex issues and empower them to move forward and deal with their situation.

My ID was stolen, I kept running into more problems. My Personal Advocate stepped me through what I needed to get back on track.

I am 85, live alone and got a 72 hour eviction notice. I had no idea whom to call. Someone told me about Elders in Action and they helped me get through a very scary time.
