Mission Statement

Portland Homeless Family Solutions empowers homeless families with children to get back into housing and to stay there long-term.

Description

Portland Homeless family Solutions is a non-profit that runs two homeless shelters for families with children. The Lents Family Shelter serves as our 24 hour shelter while Family Winter Shelter is a season emergency shelter that operates in the cold weather months. PHFS began at First United Methodist Church in 1994, as one of the few family shelters in the Portland metro area that allows homeless families to stay together while living in a temporary shelter.

Families staying at the shelter are provided a light breakfast, lunch, and an evening meal .They have access to a caseworker, internet, showers, laundry facilities, sleeping areas, and constructive activities for kids. Thanks to many donations received throughout the year, we maintain a pantry of personal toiletry items and a small clothes closet of recycled clothing for shelter families.

People from many faiths and traditions, community organizations, businesses and from the secular community, serve as volunteers. Portland Homeless Family Solutions relies on the services of numerous volunteers each day all year round. Volunteers prepare and serve the evening meal, set out lunch, provide activities for children, facilitate homework help and preschool activities, and serve as helping hands, to coordinate the schedule for guests who wish to use the laundry, showers, pantry and donation closet.
