The Native Community Employment Services (NCES) program seeks to increase the economic success of the Native community in Portland by providing opportunities for participants to gain the skills and experience needed to be successful in the workforce.
The housing program offers longer-term housing stability assistance, emergency energy assistance and Rent Well classes. The Rent Well series of classes is designed to assist people who may have difficulty renting an apartment or home, thus helping to increase their ability to gain stable housing.
The homeownership program works to increase homeownership opportunities for Portland's urban Native community and close the Native homeownership gap.
NAYA Family Center facilitates several programs related to Native economic well-being, including Individual Development Accounts (IDAs), financial wellness classes, a small-business microenterprise class, tax assistance, and continuing education.
