A big thank you to everyone who supported Bradley Angle in 2012 (including those of you who helped us raise almost $13,000 through the Willamette Week Give!Guide!) We are so lucky to live in a city that cares so deeply about creating communities where safe, healthy relationships are a reality for everyone. Thank you for supporting Bradley Angle!
It’s that time of year! Willamette Week Give!Guide is officially LIVE!
If you’re an avid peruser of social media, a loyal reader of Willamette Week, or you have a great memory, you may already know what the holiday season means: the kickoff to the
For the fourth year in a row, Bradley Angle is honored to be one of the amazing local nonprofits featured in the Guide. Each year, we rally our supporters and try to encourage young donors, old donors, people who’ve never made a gift before, and people who frequently make charitable gifts to do their holiday giving through the Give!Guide.
1. It’s quick and easy. You’re literally one click away from making a gift that affects the lives of hundreds of families in need each year.
2. Every donor who gives more than $10 receives fabulous incentives like discounts and freebies from all your favorite local spots. When else do you get a gift for giving a gift?
3.Your support of Bradley Angle makes a real impact. More than half of our funding comes directly from YOU. That means your gifts help us keep the lights on at our emergency shelter, the kids in transitional housing clothed and fed, the individuals dropping into the Bradley Angle Resource Center supported, and all of our families equipped with real skills for creating safer, healthier relationships.
The Give!Guide is live until midnight on New Year’s Eve, but past years have shown that early gifts encourage other donors to choose Bradley Angle. So make a statement! Get your Give!Guide on!

Bradley Angle Resource Center Open House
Bradley Angle is Going Back to School!
Each year, more than 150 kids and teens ranging from 0-18 years old come through Bradley Angle’s shelter, transitional housing, and community-based programs while their parent works to create safer futures for them.
No matter what month Bradley Angle youth arrive into our services, many of them face transitions related to school. Some switch schools to be closer to new homes, others take long commutes via public transportation to their schools of origin, and many begin working with some of the local education options for homeless students. One thing they all have in common is a need for school supplies, and this month we’re making an extra push to stock up for the upcoming year.
When you’re back-to-school shopping for your own family or walk by the school supply aisle at your local store, consider grabbing an extra set of pencils, erasers, crayons, notebooks, and folders for a Bradley Angle child. We accept donations at our Resource Center (5432 N. Albina) from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday.

Making Change Now: Money Smart Week
We are excited to announce that Bradley Angle is partnering with Innovative Changes to sponsor a full day of Money Smart Week! Money Smart Week is a series of free classes and activities happening all over the country that are designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. And we’re hosting an entire day of workshops, right here in Portland!
Why did Bradley Angle want to be a part of Money Smart Week? Every day, we hear stories from participants who have had their finances controlled by an intimate partner. We see survivors who have not only had no access to information about their financial state, but who have been kept intentionally in vulnerable financial positions. It is with these stories in mind that we’ve designed each workshop, each of which aim to provide tools for financial self-sufficiency while connecting survivors with others who are experiencing similar situations.
What: A full day of free financial education workshops including: budgeting, investing, credit 101, taxes, safety and finances, predatory lending,resume and cover letters, and tips on funding your education. Each workshop has a focus on survivors of domestic violence
When: Friday, April 27 2012, 12 p.m. -7 p.m.

My name is Marina. I was in an abusive relationship for 12 years, and married six of those. I experienced abuse at every level, which started after being in the relationship one year. One of the most common questions I’ve been asked is, “Why did you stay so long?”
I was relieved to learn that it takes an average of five to eight attempts to get out of an abusive relationship—my... Read More »
