“We wouldn’t have found an apartment if it wasn’t for the volunteers and the shelter managers. They were always there to help us. Thank you.”

PHFS: Services

Portland Homeless Family Solutions empowers homeless families with children to get back into housing - and stay there. We do this through three main programs:

Housing First Program
PHFS helps families experiencing homelessness move back into housing as quickly as possible. We provide rent assistance and case management for 6-12 months to help families keep their housing long-term.

PHFS operates 24 hours of shelter every day of the year for families experiencing homelessness. We rely on a team of over 600 volunteers to help provide supportive, compassionate services.

Life Lab Skills Training

PHFS teaches evidence-based classes to help families learn new tools and skills they can use to help them get and retain housing. Our classes include Incredible Years Parenting, Rent Well Tenant Education, and the ARISE Life Skills Curriculum.
