Our mission is to empower homeless families with children to get back into housing and to stay there long term.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, PHFS helped 297 families find temporary shelter, learn new life skills, move back into permanent housing, and stay in their housing. It takes an average of 56 days to find housing, and 95 percent of the families keep their housing long term.
$25+ donors receive a burger from Bless Your Heart Burgers, one $500+ donor receives a Tasting Menu for 8 at Mediterranean Exploration Company, and some $75 donors receive gift certificates to Toro Bravo Inc restaurants.
“PHFS helped me rethink my whole situation. I took classes, learned how to budget, learned my rights as a tenant, and learned how to set and reach goals.” —PHFS client
