Hope in the Heart of Portland

We are looking for compassionate folks in the community who have a desire to make a difference in the lives of people living in poverty. Many in Old Town-Downtown Portland are extremely socially isolated, longing for simple companionship. Teams of two visit residents living in single room occupancy (SRO) hotels within walking distance of Macdonald Center. Volunteers visit the same individuals each week to build relationships. Visits take place Monday through Thursday from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm. Volunteers choose one day per week to visit. A 3-hour orientation and minimum 6-month to a year commitment is required.

Let us give you a rewarding opportunity to brighten the day of someone is who is living in isolation.

To make a difference in the lives of others PLEASE APPLY TO VOLUNTEER TODAY!

Mission Statement

Together, we can disrupt social isolation and build a thriving Portland for all of us! CONNECTION IS A BASIC HUMAN NEED We all need people in our lives that "get us." People who accept us for who we are and share our joys and sorrows during the inevitable twists and turns of life.


Since 1991, we’ve built a more vibrant Portland by collaborating with residents in more than 30 buildings in the downtown area who face barriers to meaningful connection - so more of us can experience a healthy, connected life and contribute to a thriving Portland.
What we do!
Home Visits: Pairs of community volunteers visit folks living on the margins and at risk for social isolation (typically weekly).
Support Services: One-on-one meetings with members to navigate barriers to independence and stability.
Spiritual Support: Spiritual support and memorials appropriate to each member’s faith or religious tradition.
Community Room: Our community room is a comfortable space for members to gather during the day. Affectionately called "their living room."
Low Income Housing: Macdonald West has 42 affordable studio apartments for people who earn 60% or less of the median family income.
Assisted Living: Macdonald Residence has 54 rooms and is one of the only 100% Medicaid facilities in the nation.
