Caring for the Community
Income Property Management realizes that to build strong, successful properties we must also build strong communities.
How We Are Involved
As a company and as individual employees, we contribute to and serve the community at large as well as build strong communities within our management portfolio.
Within the IPM portfolio–particularly the income-restricted buildings–we encourage managers and on-site employees to work with organizations to meet the needs of struggling residents. Residents in our Single Room Occupancy (SRO) buildings, for instance, receive holiday meals, food bank assistance, a clothing bank, and access to an education coordinator who specializes in matching residents with community organizations. Many employees of IPM have been recognized by these organizations for their efforts.
As a company, we are involved with a variety of programs. Each December, we participate in the Adopt-A-Family program to provide families in need with food, household items, clothing, and toys. For the 2007-10 school years, the corporate office participated in the Adopt-A-Classroom program at Humboldt Elementary School, a Title I school in North Portland. The program teams up businesses with classrooms to provide support, encouragement, and mentors to children. We have also helped with Northwest Pilot Project's Walk-A-Thon for a number of years both as walk-a-thon participants and a corporate sponsor. Additional projects include supporting graduates of the Salvation Army's White Shield Center and Schoolhouse Supplies.
Employees continue this dedication in their personal lives by donating to and volunteering with fantastic organizations such as Hands On Greater Portland, the Cascade AIDS Project, Oregon Food Bank, Providence Festival of the Trees, Volunteers of America, Northwest Pilot Project, and many others.
