We are committed to building safe harbor spaces that will allow people to be, belong and, eventually, flourish. With this at heart, Oregon Harbor of Hope operates by the following values:


  • Collaboration – Efforts by organizational partners and volunteers will be integrated and complementary to Oregon Harbor of Hope’s efforts
  • Respect – Guests will be treated with dignity and without shame
  • Trust – People are given time and space to learn to trust others and OHOH
  • Relationship – Peer mentorship and diverse participation is offered
  • Rigorous Evaluation – The effect of improving the quality of life for the homeless can be measured and programs and service delivery can be improved to create better outcomes
