Portland Homeless Family Solutions empowers homeless families with children to get back into housing and to stay there long term.
Bottom Line for Portland
Each year, PHFS helps more than 185 homeless families with children find temporary shelter, learn new life skills and move back into permanent housing. It takes an average of 54 days to find housing, and 94 percent of the families keep their housing long-term.
“PHFS changed my life and my whole situation. I finally found a place where people took initiative and cared about me and my family. I came in one person and I came out another.” —Angela, mother of four
