Bobby is just a child, but he has been diagnosed with cancer. His father had to cut back on hours at work in order to take Bobby back and forth to appointments. With less money and high medical bills to pay, they struggled. Bobby felt bad about the hardships caused by his cancer and felt worse that his favorite holiday, Christmas, wouldn’t be celebrated. They couldn’t afford food or rent, much less gifts.
Then a neighbor told Bobby’s dad about Cityteam. When Bobby’s dad came to Cityteam, the staff and volunteers jumped right in to help with a food box for him to take home that day. He also received gifts for Bobby and his sisters to open on Christmas day. The support from Cityteam makes their burden a little lighter and their Christmas such a meaningful and special time.Read More Stories
Your involvement is what makes it possible to change lives, families, and communities. Every program at Cityteam from a hot meal to addiction recovery is only possible because of support from individuals, companies, churches, and schools who care about helping others. You don’t have to be a superhero to make a difference. Here are some ways YOU can get involved.
Providing hot, nutritious meals to people struggling with hunger.
A program that offers men the ability to escape the vice-grip of addiction through individual and group counseling.
Our shelter provides a safe place for those struggling with homelessness to sleep.
Volunteers and donors often tell our staff that they didn’t realize how much Cityteam Portland does to help the homeless, those living in poverty, and those struggling with hunger and addiction. It’s true, we are passionate about saving lives while serving them with dignity and grace.
