Important Notice

Our standard way of operating our Overnight Shelter has been impacted by Covid-19 restrictions. For the 2020/2021 winter season we are providing space, 7 nights a week, for the Washington County SWS-South operated by the Good Neighbor Center.

Overnight Shelter

Our Mission

The Mission of Rise Church's Houseless Ministry is to serve the needs of the houseless and poverty stricken in our community in coordination with other area churches and organizations.

Ways to Get Involved

We need volunteers for the following roles:

Set up facilities on Friday afternoon.
Interact with guests at check-in or help distribute clothing and hygiene items. Spend the night as an overnight host.

If you are interested, please contact our office:

Financial Donations

While we run a tight ship, it still takes money to keep our overnight shelter running. When you give, you meet physical needs, but you also provide hope to those who desperately need it!

Three practical ways to help:

Cash Donation
To make a monetary donation, please call the church office at 503.639.3273

Can and Bottle Drive
Bring rinsed cans and bottles to the church. Transfer funds from your Bottle Drop account to the Rise Church fundraiser account.

Holiday Mission Marketplace
Every December, we encourage our congregation and community to purchase a $5 McDonald’s gift card to be given for a homeless guest. These are available to purchase after the 10:00 am church service every Sunday in December, or you can call the church office at 503.639.3273 to make the purchase.
