Community of Hope exists to empower homeless single-parent families to cultivate hope, healing, and stability while living in a safe, supportive environment. Community of Hope began as a collaborative effort by the Church in North Portland in the spring of 2012 and has since grown to have the capacity to serve up to eight families at a time. Our program is 100% referral-based because place and stability matter. Preference is given to North Portland families.

Building on the inherent strengths of families, our staff provides holistic, trauma-informed care to empower parents to hold a job, manage finances, steer clear of addictions, develop positive relationships, grow in parenting skills, and make healthy life choices, all in the context of beautiful, messy community life.
