About CWP

Community Works Project (CWP) is a consortium of six community-based organizations that delivers job search, skills building and employment barrier removal services to TANF recipients in Multnomah County. We provide culturally-appropriate services to a wide range of communities and link all participants with relevant community resources. 

We work in close collaboration with our funder, the Oregon Department of Human Services, and accept referrals through DHS Family Coaches.

We are located at the DHS East County Family Service Center and at the DHS Southeast Portland Self-Sufficiency Office (map). We also work closely with the DHS Schools Team in Multnomah County.
