Help Us Give Medical Debt the Axe!
Medical debt is a contributing factor to the current homeless epidemic. When individuals and families are saddled with medical debt they have to cut costs, which can include downsizing their living situation or moving in with friends and family. For some that’s the first step on a path towards living out of their cars, in shelters or being homeless on the streets. We’ve seen this firsthand in Portland, and now by partnering with RIP Medical Debt we’re going to do something about it.
With this campaign we have the opportunity to purchase and forgive $2M in medical debt right here in Multnomah County. Realty Portland will be contributing with every closing we have, and we encourage our friends, neighbors and agents to contribute on their own as well. The faster we get to our goal the faster all our fellow Portlanders will get a letter saying their medical debt is PAID IN FULL! And then they can get back to their lives without the burden of debt, interest and collections agencies. Please join us today.
