Nonprofits want to start in July

KOIN, Oregon — A new daytime shelter for homeless children and families will open in northeastern Portland this summer.

Metro East’s Family Promise will open a center that provides a safe place for people to wash, shower, access computers, and stay outside work or school.

The Day Center is located on 4837NE Couch Street within the Portland Community of Christ.

Family Promise is a network of non-profit organizations With affiliated companies in 43 states. Metro East Family Promise provides services with the goal of helping East Portland families return to permanent homes.

In this chapter, we will use the day center to serve 3-4 families at a time. In addition, we partner with several congregations and community spaces to protect people overnight.

The new nonprofit wants to get things off the ground in July.
