Support the only day shelter and community center in Portland by making a donation on Give!Guide!

Rose Haven is honored to be included in the Willamette Week Give!Guide end-of-the-year giving campaign.

This annual online event engages the Portland community by highlighting local non-profits across ten different categories and providing a central website for making donations.

With Oregon facing the second-highest rate of homelessness in the U.S., Rose Haven needs the community’s support now more than ever before.

“All you need to do is look out the window to see how much need there is, and know that we rely on your support to do the work,” says Liz Starke, Rose Haven’s development director. “You may think that a small donation doesn’t matter, but when everybody does what they can, we are able to create meaningful change. Together, we are filling the gaps in a broken system.”
