Chris Porter

Chris has lived in Spokane, WA since moving here from the West Side in 2015 to complete graduate studies at EWU in mental health counseling. He loves this city and the people he's met here as well as Spokane's great location in the middle of other weekend road trip destinations.

He's now a community mental healthcare provider, working as a clinician serving both case management and therapeutic needs of his clients of low-income backgrounds. Working in this field has been a destination Chris has planned to arrive at for many years, but it also encourages him to grow and to maintain and build new connections with the people around him.

Interest areas include mental health, self-care and wellness, but also coalition-building between various diverse groups and how that can lead to stronger outcomes. Chris likes listening to music, cooking & entertaining, spending time at home in the colder months and exploring when it's warmer.

We are excited to add Chris to our team and are grateful that he’s willing to give his time and talents to our organization!
