Operation Nightwatch is a non-sectarian night ministry of friendship and community
that has been serving Portland’s street population since 1981.
Whereas other agencies exist to provide services such as housing, food, and clothing to the homeless, low-income, and mentally ill, ONW’s unique vision is that these populations also suffer from simple social isolation. Our simple mission is to reach out to them, nurturing relationship.
We welcome each person who comes to us, just as they are. No one is required to conform to any particular belief or faith practice in order to receive our services.

Our annual NightFest! event to celebrate our inclusion in the annual Willamette Week holiday Give!Guide will be held Monday, November 9, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Tabor Space, 5441 SE Belmont Street, in Portland.
It’s going to be fun, with live music, food, and a silent auction with some great offerings.
And as the Give!Guide will have just hit the streets, it will be your chance to see for the very first time our colorful Nightwatch listing.
Put it on your calendar now! We hope to see everyone at NightFest!

Take a look at how the costs pencil out:
