Success Stories


Through these connections I was able to get into school and graduate as a Certified Medical Assistant


Outside In made me want to be around excellence. Outside In shaped me. It taught me how to be kind to people less fortunate.


When I came out as trans and reached out to the community for help, everyone had something good to say about Outside In.


If you met me today, you might never imagine I spent countless nights sleeping under the Burnside Bridge.


As a patient at Outside In, the dignity, compassion, and respect that I was shown by staff truly had a lasting impact on me and directly resulted in me wanting to get involved in helping my community.


Through Outside In’s guidance and support, I was in my own apartment completely self-sufficient within a week.
