William Temple House


William Temple House provides food, counseling, clothing, and household items to Portland-area neighbors to strengthen our community. 

Bottom Line for Portland

Every donation to William Temple House supports our neighbors with the mission-based programs and services they deserve and need. Your generous gift helps nourish the whole person—by supporting healthy relationships, providing healthy and free food options, and improving quality of life. Thank you for joining us in strengthening our community! 


“I have been able to function better. I’ve gotten confidence to find a part-time job and get through more of my life situations. I don’t know if I could have gotten through them without some good, helpful counseling.” —William Temple House Social Services client 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Equity and justice are the core values guiding all our work at William Temple House. Our programs, services, and offerings are inclusive of all households and family structures, races and ethnicities, languages spoken, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, faiths, and immigration experiences. In the pursuit of social justice, we stand with each other by lifting up our clients’ voices, stories, and strengths, and continuing to center these perspectives in our work.
