Sisters of the Road

Mission

Sisters of the Road’s Cafe provides fresh meals to Portlanders surviving homelessness. We recognize and affirm the dignity of each guest. Sisters is profoundly about love and nourishes a diverse community, invites participation and works to end homelessness forever.

Bottom Line for Portland

Sisters provides meals to 50,000 Portlanders in need. In addition to returning friends, it welcomes 2,600 new guests annually. The heart of its work (building authentic relationships) is harder to quantify. Customers exchange 16,000 volunteer hours every year to run the cafe and create the unique community that makes Sisters special.

“I ‘grew up’ coming to Sisters of the Road. They’ve seen me in addiction. They’ve seen me clean. I’ve been a barter worker, a
volunteer, and now I work a full-time position. The community feeds me and makes me grow.”
