Innovative Changes is located in Suite 2027 of the Lloyd Center Mall. Our office is on the 3rd Floor of the mall, right next to the Food Court.

Parking: Parking is free at the Lloyd Center. The best place to park is in the parking lot which has an entrance on 9th Ave in between Halsey and Multnomah streets. Once you enter the parking lot, drive up to the top level. Enter the building through the door at the food court (where the two L-shaped buildings meet). There is a ramp at this entrance. Once you enter the building, turn right and walk to the first intersection, then make a right. Our office is the third door on the right after you leave the food court.

Public Transportation: The Lloyd Center is served by the Green, Red and Blue MAX lines. Use the Lloyd Center/NE 11th MAX Station stop. Several buses also go to the Lloyd Center including numbers 8,9,70, 73, and 77. Consult Trimet (www.trimet.org) for more information. Once you get into the Lloyd Center Building, find your way to the food court on the third floor, walk towards the west end of the building and our office will be on the right. We are right across the hall from the beauty school.

Organizer Innovative Changes

Organizer of 2017 Credit Boot Camp Pilot

Since 2010, Innovative Changes has helped change the lives of Oregonians through programs and services that help people achieve their long term financial health. We are committed to serving our community and fostering racial equity and economic justice. In 2017, Innovative Changes merged with CASA of Oregon to expand our services across the state.


Over the years, we’ve taken a chance on thousands of our most financially vulnerable Oregonians through small dollar loans, credit building, matched savings and financial coaching and education.  

Scroll down for a list of our upcoming events, including classes, program orientations, seminars, and more! We look forward to seeing you soon!
