Lights, Camera, Nightwatch! We would like to sincerely thank Ryan Maher from Splash NW for his time and talent. He has created and donated an outstanding new video for the Nightwatch collection. We’re so excited about it, we wanted to share it with you! You can check out the video by clicking on the link below. Please feel free to share this video far and wide, we know we will be!

 

Mobile Hospitality Center now at Clackamas Service Center!

Clackamas Service Center

 

 After a two-month period of transition and improvisation in the wake of the Clackamas Service Center (CSC) fire, we are pleased to announce that our MHC will now be returning to CSC! While it will still take a number of months to completely rebuild, both Nightwatch and CSC are eager to find increasing stability while serving our guests. Our Mobile Hospitality Center will be open on Fridays from 7-9 pm and Saturdays from 5-8 pm. We will be in the parking lot of the service center, located at 8800 SE 80th Ave. Join us for coffee, socks, blankets, food, and of course- community!

Drivers Sought

In going out in Friday evenings, our Mobile Hospitality Center provides a vital drivers neededservice to the homeless in SE. (Take a look at the MHC at work.)

We're seeking to expand our pool of MHC drivers. A special license is not required. We will provide ample training. Driving is no great chore, as the spot where where we set up is only one mile from where we store the vehicle through the week. And by being part of a pool, you would be called upon to drive on only an occasional basis.

WATCH: The Mobile Hospitality Center

Though Nightwatch is a single organization, it sometimes feels like we have two faces: there's the Downtown Nightwatch, and there's Nightwatch in SE.

The constituents of each Nightwatch--both guests and volunteers-- may have a vague sense that the other exists, but what exactly the other is like may elude them.

Well, here's good news (at least for the Downtown folks)! We now have a professionally produced video created by Blackstone Edge Studios that shows in less than two minutes what Mobile Hospitality Center is all about. You can access it on YouTube by clicking here.

The MHC goes out every Friday night to serve folks in SE along the Springwater Corridor. If you've been a Downtown volunteer and are intrigued enough by what you see in the video to volunteer a night with the MHC, just let us know.

As for our folks in SE . . .

We'll work on getting something similar put together about what goes on Downtown so you can appreciate what goes on there.
