Boys and Girls Club of Portland

Erin Hubert leads the Boys and Girls Club of Portland, providing after-school programs for youth. Her Encore Fellow Ken Harris lead the securing of a $7 million bridge loan to finance a new campus of the Club.

“Ken secured a $7 million complex bridge loan to have the needed cash to get the Club built on time,” Hubert says. “He was able to traverse the complexity of this process – the financing and legalities of it – in a way that I couldn’t have done.”
