Operation Nightwatch Portland
April 14, 2013

I do footcare for the guests of Operation Nightwatch twice a month and have done so for 25 years. It is a very pleasent experience and I have made some very thouhgtful and considerate friends who are guests of Operation Nightwatch. I look forward to going to the center in Portland two Saturdays a month. The staff of Operation Nightwatch sees to my every need and treat the guests with great respect. If you would care to contact me to become a footcare nurse, contact Operation Nightwatch.

Operation Nightwatch Portland
February 22, 2011

I have been involved with Operation Nightwatch-Portland for at least 25 years as both an evening volunteer, bookkeeper, and foot care ministry helping my wife who does the foot care ministry. I have been and continue to be impressed with the way low-income and homeless people are treated with dignity and respect. No one is looked down on who comes to the center or the mobile hospitality center. All are welcome. We offer coffee, tea, water, sandwiches, comedy movie night, birthday night, and bible study times. The number of participants has increased each year that Operation Nightwatch-Portland has been in existance.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way I have seen and heard from people at the center how they consider Operation Nightwatch-Portland to be the best at having a place in Portland, Oregon where homeless and low-income people can meet and share their lives and situations with their peers and volunteers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing. They have an executive director who is very good at seeing to the needs of guests.
