Would you recommend Portland Homeless Family Solutions?
The staff is very welcoming, appreciative, professional, and well trained. Instructions are clear and it's nice to know that all staff and volunteers have gone through a security check. 98% of the time families are also very appreciative. Although it is obvious why some families might be homeless in the best of economies due to various issues, it is also true that most families are hard working people who really have run into some bad luck during these economic times. It is humbling. It is also a lot of fun to play with the kids who really are the champs in this situation. I had one new 11 year old's eyes light up when he saw how his family would get to sleep on a mat and have their own cubby. "Cool!!" What a great attitude---I went home smiling and I should note that I have never felt unsafe while volunteering at this shelter.
