VAN Releases Annual Report

In March 2021, Vision Action Network marked a 20-year milestone as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. As a unique organization that operates behind the scenes, we strive to center the voices of the community and advance a common agenda. Whether the topic is aging, housing and homelessness, sustainability, or racial equity, VAN invites people from all sectors to come to the table and cultivate relationships, envision the possible, and work together to make it a reality.

Our 2020/21 Annual Report provides a snapshot of VAN’s work during one of the most challenging times we have ever faced – as an organization, as a community, as people on this planet. We remain grateful for the opportunity to serve the residents of Washington County, Oregon, and hopeful about what we can accomplish together.
