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 gives back to our neighbors who don’t always have the support they deserve and need. Your gift will help people heal their relationships, meet their basic needs, and improve the quality of their lives. Thank you for joining us!


“I’ve been coming to William Temple for over two years and it has made my life so much more enjoyable and healthier. My experience coming to get needed supplies and food always gives me joy and hope! The respect and dignity that is given to everyone, it’s really unique to have this uplift in my life. Thank you and mahalo.” –Keely

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

William Temple House serves people with diverse needs – including immigrants, people with disabilities, and people experiencing housing insecurity – and we are committed to advancing equity and inclusion in all that we do. We are actively working to engage the people we support in our decision making, deepen our partnerships with culturally specific organizations, change policies that create barriers for our community members, and address the ways in which white supremacy culture shows up in our organization.
