Help the homeless connect with humanity

SEPTEMBER 2017. Mat Ellis, Founder & CEO of Cloudability, calls on BBPDX members and others in the business community to make a contribution to Street Roots. The funds will help buy supplies that people experiencing homelessness want: movie tickets, gift cards, and haircuts.

“Since joining BBPDX, we have developed a greater appreciation for the value in taking time to listen to the community.” - Mat Ellis, Founder & CEO of Cloudability
