Makeover Night in SE This Saturday

For the first time we're taking our Makeover Night out to the women at our makeoverSE Hospitality Center this Saturday, August 23.

Volunteers Allyson Famous and Susan Hoover have secured quite a collection of cosmetics, jewelry, scarves, and other accessories to provide a little specialness to our women guests who typically have very little opportunity to feel pampered.

Thanks to all who contributed to make it possible! We'll have pictures next week.

Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training, Sept. 3

We will be holding our next 6-hour Nonviolent Crisis Intervention Training from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 3.

NCIT offers approaches toward de-escalating situations of increased tension and ncitteaches ways of intervening with an agitated individual so that nobody gets hurt--helpful not only for working at Nightwatch, but in any situation of potential conflict.

We need to know who will be attending at least a week ahead of time so we may order enough materials for all participants. If interested, please call or text 503-220-0438 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Additions to Wish List: Books & Playing Cards

The bookshelves of our lending library wish listare becoming bare again, and decks of playing cards have disappeared to an extent that we'd appreciate any donations in those categories.

And should we mention blankets again? We haven't had any blankets for weeks and have had to turn many guests away who are sleeping outside with literally nothing to insulate them but the clothes they're wearing.

GIVE app Simple Way to Donate to All Your Favorite Causes

Here's a great idea:

GIVE is a new giving app where, in one give appplace, you can make donations to any US-based charity of non-profit you choose.

Just register your credit card once, then when you want to give to Nightwatch or any other charity, you just have to press a couple of buttons and you're done! How convenient! You don't have to keep re-entering your personal info for every charity site you visit.

Currently, the app is only available for the I-Phone and I-Pad.
