We are in the process of transforming our outdoor space into a garden for community members to use and to host programming! If you would like to learn more about this process or want to get involved in our garden volunteer days, please contact Corey Pierson, our Community Garden Project Manager.
Digital Equity & Literacy Program
When COVID began and so many elements of life shifted onto digital platforms, it became clear to us that we needed to dedicate resources towards bridging the digital divide in the Rosewood neighborhood. We worked with the City of Portland to provide laptops, tablets, and free wifi to community members. We also partnered with MetroEast Community Media to train community members to become Digital Navigators.
The Digital Equity & Literacy program is a continuation of this work! The Digital Equity & Literacy (DEL) program, is made up of multiple avenues of engagement, including a 4 week course taught in partnership with MetroEast Community Media, culturally-specific cohorts, workshops, Rosewood Social Drop-ins, and more. These different program elements provide the opportunity for participants to engage in different ways and to learn important digital skills, so that everyone may feel confident in the digital world.
Rosewood Cares is an annual resource giveaway event, staged as a market, giving Rosewood Community members the agency to handpick the resources. This event is made possible due to the large material donations we receive annually from KGW and Columbia Sportswear, and through our partnership with Community Services Network.
