Operation Nightwatch provides night-time hospitality for Portland’s unhoused population to promote community, dignity and social connection. We operate at night, when most agencies are closed and hope can be especially hard to find.
Bottom Line for Portland
Our volunteers serve more than 23,000 houseless guests at our Downtown and Clackamas Hospitality Centers every year. Guests enjoy a safe place to relax with food, showers, socks, blankets, footcare, and mental health support. We create a welcoming environment where people connect and feel the respect of a supportive community.
We are grateful to Solmate Socks for supporting our mission and providing a great pair of socks for everyone that donates at least $40 as well as an additional pair for one of our guests!
“I came to Nightwatch when I first became homeless and didn’t know what to do. I left knowing that, no matter how bad things got, there were people that would treat me with respect, the way all humans should be treated. I come back to inspire others in their recovery.” —Ken, former guest
