Review for Operation Nightwatch Portland, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Nightwatch is wonderful. I've been coming for three years now, and am an active member in the homeless community, both as a guest and as a volunteer. Nightwatch gives me a place to socialize with friends who sleep outside, as well as make new ones who do not. I enjoy the fact that I can come here, be myself, and accepted as that person, even on my bad days. I can talk to people whose concerns are not 'where shall I sleep tonight?' or 'Which line will I stand in to eat?'

Gary is a wonderful organizer, and has the interests of the guests of Nightwatch in mind with every decision he makes. The volunteers are wonderful, and many have been coming for far longer than I have.

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

Because I sleep outside

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

Make sure the volunteers are guided a bit better.

Role:  Client Served & I sat, and relaxed, in a place that accepted me.
