    Our facility is located in the downtown Portland area so it attracts people who are familiar with this part of town. We have a wide variety of staff of different ethnic backgrounds. We have a social worker on duty 40 hours a week to help with shopping, counseling and support. We help people with money management and hand out small amounts of money three times a week. Our building is over 100 years old and has a very unique look to it. We are in walking distance from all the downtown Portland shopping areas.
