Each month we host monthly outings to nearby parks and cultural settings. We've inner-tubed on Mt. Hood, taken beach trips, hiked in the Gorge, and taken Christmas trips to the Oregon Zoo. These trips have proven to be important times of renewal in the lives of those who often face grim daily prospects.
Our annual spiritual retreat, a 3-day event away from the city, provides an especial opportunity for our guests to assess their lives.
Each year during Holy Week we sponsor a memorial service to remember those on the streets who have died in the past year. It is a fully interfaith service, with representation from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Native, and Buddhist traditions.
The year ends with a large Christmas party, where everyone is treated to a sit-down feast, given Christmas stockings, shares Christmas carols, and welcomes Santa.
