50 Years of Changing Lives, Changing Communities

Dear Friends,

September 2012 marked the official launch of our 50th Anniversary Celebration. Since then we've connected and celebrated with alumni, students, faculty, staff, community partners, field instructors, friends, donors, and agency partners at 50th Anniversary events like the Culture and Conversation Series, the 2014 Day of Service, and the 50th Anniversary Grand Celebration. Click here to view photos from the Grand Celebration. 


The 50/50 Photo Project 
We're excited to share the amazing photos taken by Portland's Creative Laureate, Julie Keefe, for the 50/50 Photo Project. We collaborated with Julie on this powerful project, which paired 25 of our accomplished alumni with an interview partner of their choosing for a conversation about the intersection of their personal and professional pathways. Interview partners included mentors, colleagues, family members, friends and former clients - all seminal players in the lives of our alumni. Click here to learn more about the project and to see the photos. 

Together, we'll build the next 50 years of SSW history.
