Neighbors Helping Neighbors PDX
We are a small group of Peninsula community volunteers who come together to enhance neighborhood livability and serve as a bridge between our housed and houseless neighbors.
We started In spring 2016, when Terrance Moses, a retired serviceman and Kenton resident, saw a need to reduce friction between neighbors—neighbors who are housed and neighbors who live unsheltered in small local camps in tents, cars and RVs.
We currently serve several camps for houseless folks in North Portland by:
1. Distributing trash bags to folks living in the camps, providing a way for them to keep their surroundings tidy.
2. Collecting trash bags which are taken to the dump on Mondays and occasionally on Saturdays.
3. Offering sandwiches and clothing (when available) to camp dwellers on trash collection days.
