Our Story. Our Voice. Our Culture.

Oregonians from Bhutanese, Micronesian, and African communities introduce their cultures and share stories in an evening of fun and learning. Women will tell birth stories, offering a glimpse of experiences that carry vital lessons to be learned by health professionals and the broader Portland community. The program includes song, poetry, and dance performances from the three communities.

We Are Home is a collaborative project between Multnomah County Health Department - Public Health Division and the Oregon Community Health Worker Association. The project expands support for immigrant and refugee families by incubating community-driven, culturally specific approaches to maternal, child, and family health services.
