Operation Nightwatch provides evening 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
Each weekend, approximately 450 guests are welcomed at downtown Portland and Clackamas County locations. Volunteers visit with guests to unwind from a stressful day and feel like a part of our community. We are proud to provide this hospitality to support our guests’ sense of honor and respect.
“Thanks for your time, smiles, compassion, empathy for humanity, for being YOU! Do you ever think, wonder what it’s like being us for a minute? You make us FEEL good about ourselves. Thank you!”
—Tiffany, Operation Nighwatch guest
