Work Out 💚 Give Back is always in season, and we’re going big this year! As a community, we’ve selected four local nonprofits doing essential work right here in Portland. Over the next 12 months, we’ll hold four group workout events that raise money for one of our selected nonprofits each time.
Work Out Give Back is in its 5th year at Hyatt Strength + Wellness. One of our core values is Community, and it has been a dream come true to pool together the collective resources of our studio community and help great organizations doing great work in our neighborhood and beyond. In the past we have made significant donations to New Avenues for Youth, Habitat for Humanity, Mudbone Grown, Friendly House, Children’s Cancer Association and the Oregon Community Foundation Wildfire Rebuilding Fund.
Work Out Give Back is also a fun Sunday workout with people you don’t necessarily see at the gym and trainers you don’t get a chance to directly work with. We’d love for you to join us (the more the merrier!) but know that you don’t have to workout to contribute to the featured nonprofit.
How it works
Join the Hyatt Strength + Wellness community to meet, sweat and enjoy the company of one another.
We request a $35 donation per attendee to the featured nonprofit of each event. Friends and family are welcome! The more the merrier—membership is not required.

Meet the featured organizations
As they are lovingly called in the community, TIP is a group of specially trained volunteers who provide emotional aid, practical support and resources to victims of traumatic events and their families in the first few hours following a tragedy. TIP volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Volunteers are requested through the emergency response system at the request of police, fire, paramedics, hospitals, medical examiners, schools and businesses. TIP volunteers support family members and friends following a suicide, natural or unexpected death; victims of crime; victims of fires; drownings; people involved in motor vehicle accidents; witnesses to crimes and people who are affected by gang and gun violence.
TIP NW currently has over 200 volunteers responding to an average of 170 calls per month.
TIP mission: Their volunteers provide emotional first aid to survivors of tragedy in order to ease their immediate suffering and facilitate their healing and long-term recovery.
Path Home helps more than 500 families with children get back into permanent housing each year. They empower families with children to get back into housing and stay there.
The programs offered by Path Home are centered around:
1) Housing first. Families experiencing homelessness move back into housing as quickly as possible. They provide rent assistance and case management for 6-12 months to help families keep their housing long-term.
2) Prevention. Families with a 72-hour eviction notice get to keep their housing. They pay security deposits, moving costs, or back rent for families so they never have to experience homelessness with their children.
3) Shelter. Families have a safe, warm place to sleep every night of the year. They have all the comforts of home—private sleeping spaces, food, showers, laundry, computers, and clothing. They rely on a team of over 300 volunteers to help provide supportive, compassionate services.
4) Adult education. Families take evidence-based classes to learn new skills they can use to get and keep housing. Their classes include Incredible Years Parenting, Rent Well Tenant Education, and the ARISE Life Skills Curriculum.
