In partnership with the organizations that have reached out to us, we have compiled a list of ways to get involved. Please go to the links provided and find a way to help if you can.

Safe Families for Children
With the current COVID-19 crisis, the need for host families and supports will grow. Safe Families for Children will likely be inundated with need for short term day respite and hosting. Go to www.safefamiliespdx.org to start the process to become an approved host, coach or circle of support for a family. Safe Families for Children seeks to keep children safe during a family crisis such as homelessness, hospitalization, or domestic violence in an effort to prevent child abuse and/or neglect. They also work to support, and stabilize families in crisis by surrounding them with a caring, compassionate community.

My Father's House is a shelter for homeless families in Gresham. Please see the list of needs below and consider dropping off your donations to 5003 W Powell Pkwy, Gresham, Oregon (shared parking lot with Family Worship Church). Ring the bell and someone will come out and get supplies.
