Southeast Hospitality Center
Welcome to Operation Nightwatch Portland! We are a non-profit organization that offers social nurturing and community to those experiencing homelessness. We host two different Hospitality Centers in the greater Portland Area, and we would love to have you join us as a volunteer!
Opportunity Description: Our Southeast Hospitality Center is always buzzing with activity on Saturday nights, which makes it a great place to volunteer! At this center we provide hot meals and coffee to our guests. We also offer blankets, socks, jackets and other necessary supplies to help keep our guests warm and dry. Most importantly, we provide our guests with a safe place to be in community and to receive some social nurturing and support. We are currently operating out of the Clackamas Service Center parking lot while they rebuild after a fire, so please dress for the weather!
To volunteer at this center, we do need you to sign up on our online roster. To do so, please follow the "Volunteer" button and prompts located on our website, www.operationnightwatch.org. If you have any questions, please contact us at 541-905-3533. Thank you, we hope to see you soon!
