PHFS Lents Campus

PHFS

Portland Homeless Family Solutions is remodeling a church, apartments and parking lot into a pioneering trauma-informed short-term shelter designed to restore feelings of safety, hope, dignity and confidence. Therapeutic gardens, gathering spaces and play areas extend the function of the buildings into the outdoors, unifying the campus and creating a sense of connection and joy.
