MISSION:

To work together as rental providers on the path toward becoming more ethical in our relationships with tenants, with communities, and with the environment. To use our position as rental providers to push for systems and culture change, to move towards a more fair society with a strong safety net. We will listen to and value those who are most impacted.

ABOUT:

Rental Providers for Positive Change is a project of CascadiaNow!, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. RPforPC project founder Edith Casterline is working with a team of other rental providers, along with tenant activists and other community members, in filling a gap in the discussions around the housing crisis and needed change. RPforPC is in supportive partnership with Community Alliance of Tenants, and is looking forward to developing partnerships with other groups and organizations in alignment with our mission. We are based in Portland, Oregon, and focused on this region.

Together, as progressive landlords and others connected to rentals, we:

  • Learn about, develop, and share practices & policies that are pro-tenant, pro-community, pro-environment.
  • Voice our support of changes that make housing options more equitable and stable, and that increase the safety net — countering the profit-over-people mindset.
