Can We Help? Street Outreach To The Homeless

Portland has one of the highest population of homeless people per-capita in America.  Can We Help?  was created to give the homeless hope and a sense of worth through this service ministry that not only meets physical needs but ministers God’s love and grace.  Teams go out the first, second and fourth Wednesdays and the third Saturday of every month. They walk the streets of downtown serving this population. 
On the first Wednesday and third Saturday of every month we combine all our outreach teams, and they  join  with our  prayer walk teams and street worship teams to invade a targeted area to see the power of the gospel through compassion to the poor, worship, and prayer transform an area with the presence of God.  Please check the calendar page for the locations of City Transformation Teams outreaches.

Portland State Student with Children Outreaches

Portland State University has a large population of students with children.  Father’s House partners with the on-campus Resource Center for Students with Children to put on events that promote healthy family time at no cost to the student parents. We also do an annual toy drive to assist families who would not be able to afford toys for their children.

Prayer Walk Teams

Weekly teams of Father’s House family members walk the streets of our city releasing the heart of the Father.   These teams often walk areas that have  promises of the Lord over them, but the enemy has a strong foothold of oppression, and there we release God’s purposes and glory.  Prayer walk teams often seed the ground in the spirit where outreach teams will be operating.   Prayer walk team members serve on a team once a month. 

Tomorrow’s Hope Sex Trafficking Intervention Ministry

This ministry is focused in the prevention and intervention of the trafficking of girls in the Portland/Vancouver metro area for the purposes of sexual exploitation.  While Tomorrow’s Hope was founded at Father’s House it is now a ministry of the Transformation Network, a 501(c3) Christian nonprofit.  The ministry is directly overseen by Pastor Steve Trujillo who has been a champion in the anti-trafficking fight in the city.   Today volunteers from at least 10 different churches are diligently working in keeping the most at risk children from the hands of sex traffickers.
