The first step to becoming a volunteer at Portland Homeless Family Solutions is to attend an orientation for the shelter at which you’d like to donate your time. We offer three orientations a month on an ongoing basis and are happy to arrange special accommodations for large groups that cannot attend one of these.

Please look over the PHFS Volunteer Handbook and volunteer rules before you fill out your application.
