My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Operation Nightwatch Portland, Portland, OR, USA
I'm a fairly new volunteer with ONW at the downtown location. I was drawn to offer my time as a retired RN at the Sat foot clinic which was just a few hours a month but I wanted to give more time. I was able to offer my RN skills in the evenings as well since they lost their MA volunteer. Because I'm a trained Massage Therapist I offered that as well.
This is a truly non-judgemental and caring non-profit community that sees hospitality as a right and gift for all involved. I try to offer 5-6 chair massages Thurs and Fri while giving basic first-aide and assessments when needed. After a month the feedback has been good by our clients. A true place of hospitality.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have others in the city realize how extra-ordinary the homeless community is and how they are us but for the vagaries of life. You can make a difference by your presence.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
