Mission and Values

Our Mission

Pamoja House is a multicultural organization serving the diverse immigrant community in the SW Portland area through education, counseling, and vocational services. We specialize in ESL, driver's education, tutoring, and citizenship classes. With the high level of personal interaction, small class size, and caring volunteer staff, Pamoja House prides itself on its community building and support, though mainly focusing on the personal needs of our individual students. We provide a wide range of opportunities in volunteerism and education in Middle Eastern/African culture.

Our Core Values

  • Volunteerism
  • Priority of building loving, lasting and reciprocal relationships

  • Excellence and professionalism in all areas of service.
  • Staff who treat one another and students with love and respect.
