Operation Nightwatch is a nonprofit organization that has been offering friendship and hospitality to Portland’s unhoused community since 1981.
Whereas other agencies exist to provide services such as housing, food, and clothing to those experiencing homelessness, low-income individuals, and those living with mental illness, ONW’s unique vision is that these populations also may 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.
