Allies in Change | About Us | Counseling | Domestic Violence | Trainings | Portland



The mission of Allies in Change is to raise awareness of, educate about, and encourage the practice of healthy, loving and respectful relationships with oneself, one's partner and family, and the community. As our name reflects, Allies in Change intends to promote working with others as allies. We acknowledge that some cultural values such as traditional definitions of gender roles and power may undermine a person's ability to be fulling loving in relationships. We seek to address and change these values on individual, familial and societal levels.


As an agency, we seek to practice these values ourselves in both our professional and personal lives.
