Relay Resources

We envision a world where everyone has meaningful work. Established in 1951, our mission is to cultivate meaningful work for people with disabilities and other barriers. We are a nonprofit organization based in Portland, OR, employing more than 700 people in the Pacific Northwest. We create value for our community by delivering quality services to our customers, good jobs to our employees and affordable homes to our residents.

Relay operates multiple social enterprises including janitorial, landscaping, document services, and supply chain solutions. We also own and manage almost 1,000 units of affordable housing. Our employees who qualify for affordable housing are moved to the top of our waitlists.    

Among the many services we offer to our customers, Relay is one of the largest janitorial service providers in the greater Portland area. Our team proudly cleans shared spaces such as the award-winning Portland International Airport (PDX), Portland State University (PSU), and Portland City Hall. The majority of our workforce identifies as having a disability.  

Relay also believes that everyone should have access to stable, affordable housing. We know that unstable housing is a barrier to employment and recognize that many factors contribute to housing instability in the community. This includes the underdevelopment of housing during a time of rapid regional growth and the underinvestment in supports for people who experience disabilities and other barriers to housing and employment.

We are looking for candidates like you to join our team! Because we believe success isn’t just about putting people to work. It’s about all of us. Working. Together.
