Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Operation Nightwatch is an ecumenical night ministry of friendship and community that serves Portland's neediest.
Whereas other agencies exist to provide services such as housing, food, and clothing to the homeless, low-income, and mentally ill, ONW's unique vision is that these populations also suffer from simple social isolation. Our mission is to reach out to them, nurturing relationship.
We welcome each person who comes to us, just as they are. No one is required to conform to any particular belief or faith practice in order to receive our services.
The hub of Operation Nightwatch activities is its Hospitality Centers, located in downtown, SE, and North Portland. The homeless, low-income, and mentally ill are invited to see the Hospitality Center as their "living room," where they may interact with friends, share stories, and play table games. Nurses on-site address elementary medical needs. We also sponsor special activities, such as a footcare clinic, outings to local parks and cultural sites, and monthly birthday and comedy movie nights.
