My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Operation Nightwatch Portland, Portland, OR, USA
I have been a volunteer at Nightwatch for many years starting two locations back but it is clear to me that the location is not the reason for the services working so well.

I look forward to seeing specific guests and feel part of the community myself. I volunteer in the evenings but also in the monthly outings, bringing lunch for the guys. My husband has helped with the Movie Nights for years. These thing continue to connect us to this wonderful non-profit.
