Volunteers Needed at Florence House!

May 21, 2018

In addition to the 350+ meals that are served three times a day at the Resource Center Soup Kitchen, Preble Street also operates soup kitchens at the Teen Center and at Florence House. Volunteers at these locations work on a smaller scale and provide much needed support to the women and youth Preble Street serves. Upwards of 50 women receive three meals a day at Florence House.

If you’re looking to make a big difference in the lives of women in Portland, Florence House is the place for you!
