Have tons of fun and help homeless children and their families!

Join an awesome team to clean SafeHaven’s Shelter for Families in North Portland on June 12, 13, and 14. A shelter that shines helps reduce the trauma of homelessness and demonstrates to families that the community cares. We will be scrubbing and waxing floors, spot painting walls, and having fun with each other. Hours are flexible - we will be working from 7am to 3pm and you are invited to attend whatever block of time fits your schedule. Please RSVP the dates and times you will attend to [email protected] to help us better plan and organize. 4610 N. Maryland. If you need help with directions, please call Dale at 503-502-7021.

SafeHaven Shelter for Families is Portland's only 24-hour emergency shelter and the only one that provides a place for families to stay as a unit, rather than separating them by gender.The shelter has operated for the past 11 years, serving 100-130 families each year. Because of the shelter’s services, 250-300 children per year are able to sleep in a bed rather than on the street or in a parked car. SafeHaven is relying more heavily than ever on volunteers during this economically fragile time, and the shelter will not be able to continue functioning without strong volunteer support. Your generosity of time to help this community changes the lives of children, helps break the cycle of poverty, and sends homeless parents a message of hope and support.
