Rose Haven serves many guests who speak Mandarin and Cantonese and we are looking for volunteer translators to help us better serve these guests where there is a language barrier. This is a new volunteer role, so we have some flexibility around the hours and days. Ideally we could have some scheduled days to add to our guest calendar and let folks know when translators will be onsite to assist.

Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center in NW Portland, serving women, children, and marginalized genders experiencing homelessness and poverty. We offer meals, showers, emergency supplies, advocacy visits, activities laundry, and a free clothing shop.

Our service hours are 9 am - 12 pm, Monday through Friday, at 1740 NW Glisan St. in Portland, and we provide parking passes to volunteers. You will need to complete a volunteer orientation and background check.

About Rose Haven

Location:

1740 NW Glisan St., Portland, OR 97209, US

Mission Statement

Our Vision: A community where everyone has safety, stability, love, health and home. Our Mission: To provide day shelter, resources, emotional support and community connections to women, children and marginalized genders experiencing homelessness and poverty.

Description

Safety, Resources and Community:
Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center in Portland OR serving women, children and marginalized genders experiencing poverty, trauma and intersecting issues. Service hours are Monday - Friday from 9:00-12:00; and volunteer opportunities are available from 8:00-4:00.

Rose Haven is a low-barrier agency that exists not to just meet basic needs, but to nurture souls and improve the emotional, mental and physical well-being of our guests and our community as a whole. We understand our agency exists within larger systems of oppression, and we seek to disrupt those structures through radical hospitality, advocacy on an individual and community level, and meaningful connections to resources. Recognizing the isolation and loneliness that homelessness can create, we work to hold a space where all guests can connect, have voice and be empowered.
