Thank you for visiting the website for the Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA). Grant Park is one of Portland’s 95 geographically defined neighborhoods. Located in northeast Portland, Grant Park is bordered by Alameda and Beaumont-Wilshire to the north, Irvington to the west, Rose City Park to the east, and the Hollywood District, Sullivan’s Gulch, and Laurelhurst to the south.

The GPNA is a volunteer organization that serves as the liaison between Grant Park residents and businesses, and the city government. The city’s Office of Community and Civic Life coordinates the neighborhood associations, which are clustered together into coalitions. Grant Park is part of the coalition known as Central Northeast Neighbors.

2023 Summer Hosting Opportunities for Families

Host a high school or college student from Japan for 1-4 weeks this summer! Hosting an international student is a great way to learn about a new culture, establish global friendships, and introduce young people to the great wide world. It is an impactful experience centered around international collaboration, solidarity, and education. The students are coming to share cultures, practice English, and become part of an American household. Students will have weekday English classes and activities at Portland State University or Pacific International Academy, commuting on public transit. (We also have long term college students enrolled at PSU, PIA, PCC campuses, Clark College, and Lewis and Clark College.) Students bring their own spending money and are covered by comprehensive medical and accident insurance. Families receive orientation materials, 24/7 support, and a small hosting stipend. ACES is a PNW nonprofit that has been connecting families and students since 1995. Learn more at acescollegehomstay.orgapply online, or contact us at aces.org@exploretheworld.org or 971-387-6388.
