Operation of the Resource Center, designed to help the homeless by providing a day shelter where they can look for jobs, access mental health services, and receive clothing and a hot meal.
Showers and Laundry, our homeless friends can do laundry for free and take showers at a local church.
Homeless Resource Cards, maintain and update the most holistic resource bank including information on Showers and Laundry, Hot Meals, and Severe Weather Shelters.
Beaverton Severe Weather Shelter, provide a warm, safe space for adults experiencing homelessness to stay during the winter.
Renovations to the Resource Center, including a complete remodel of the basement.
Job Skills and Training, we are committed to equipping individuals with the skills needed to apply for a job, interview for a job, and succeed in a job. We’ll develop these efforts as complete renovations to the Resource Center.
Community Collaboration and Safety, Just Compassion hosts regular gatherings for dialogue with community members to broaden understanding of homelessness in our area. We work with Washington County, local cities and churches to provide severe weather shelters, showers, access to resources, and help with services like obtaining housing, ID, and products like clothing and survival necessities.
"A lot of the homeless feel like they're not part of society. People look at them, past them, through them."
