Dinner & A Movie has a mentorship aspect that far exceeds expectations. They serve a niche with homeless youth that isn't being filled in Portland. Mentorship with Dinner & A Movie is basically life long because they understand that it takes a long time to help abused children who feel as though they are unloveable. There Child & Family Development Program is also tremendous, where mom's invite other mom's because they know how much it has helped them. Great place where the kids rave about the good food and that they actually feel loved and cared for.

This is a great mentoring project in Portland,Oregon for homeless youth and young families. Although they are faith-based, there is no pushiness with the religion. They have a Tuesday drop-in night where they can eat a hot meal in a safe place, watch a movie, play cards, etc. They can also pick up clean, warm clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, and other items. Portland has a large youth homeless population, the majority of which have been abused in their own homes and foster homes. Dinner and a Movie connects with them on Tuesdays to build mentoring relationships to help these kids.
