Operation Nightwatch operates a facility downtown Portland at St. Stephens Episcopal Church located at 1432 SW 13th St. This program supports the homeless community in the Portland area as well as at a location in the Clackamas area.
To better serve this community a volunteer is currently running afoot and wound care clinic where they also provide hygiene and other small medical items. Recently, it was determined the space she currently operates in needs a makeover to better store supplies, to create more sanitary conditions, and to provide a more hospitable and welcoming environment. To accomplish this goal, we need your support.
We will be moving furniture, removing carpet, installing new flooring, installing curtains for privacy and painting the entire room. So lace up your boots, grab a pair of gloves and come help us create a cleaner, safer environment to better serve the homeless population in Portland.

Inclement Weather Plan :
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
