Eastside April 19th Luncheon with Guest Speaker Robert Justus

April 7, 2017

 

Portland Business luncheons invites you to join us for lunch on April 19th. Our guest speaker will be Robert Justus.

His commitment to helping others began in his late teens when he worked in the once flourishing mining communities of Appalachia and then Arizona. When the mines shut down, Justus volunteered to work with unemployed families.

He witnessed destitute families lose their homes, families separate, and the suffering that poverty brings. The experience has been one of the driving forces behind his lifelong commitment to help low income and struggling people.

In 1991, after earning a Master’s in Theology with an emphasis on justice and peace education from the State University of New York, Justus started dating his wife and moved to her home town Portland, Oregon. There he founded JOIN in 1992, a non-profit aimed at finding permanent housing for homeless people.

In 2007, Justus also co-founded Home First Development, a company that builds affordable housing for low-income people affordably without government subsidy. He built 241 affordable apartment units in 2016 and will be breaking ground on 237 affordable units in 2017.

Justus lives with his wife, Liesl, on a floating home on the Columbia River. He has two college-aged children. In his spare time, he likes to hang out with homeless     people, at St. Francis Dining Hal because as he says, “they keep it real.”

The Eastside Location has moved to Warner Pacific at Egtvedt Hal. The address is 2219 SE 68th Ave., Portland, OR 97215.

Registration is required and cost of lunch is $20.00.

We look forward to seeing you on April 19th!
