One of our most notable examples is our Fortify program, which supports vulnerable children. Fortify is a partnership with Embrace Oregon and the Oregon Department of Human Services. The Fortify program provides a safe and affordable home to families in crisis.
Through Fortify, Metropolitan Land Group and Embrace Oregon provide 12 months of housing at a steeply discounted rate. We also offer support services to families referred by the Department of Human Services. The goal of the Fortify program is to prevent families from becoming homeless and to reduce the number of children entering foster care. Through Fortify, Metropolitan Land Group provides 20 apartments to the program and about $300,000 in annual giving.
We believe that a thriving business community is one of the best ways to support the communities we build. Our employees are active members of the business organizations in our communities. We believe in the great work these organizations do to encourage economic growth in our region.
