The Lullaby Project
This spring we partnered with the Oregon Symphony and Carnegie Hall on an endeavor called the Lullaby Project. Local singer-songwriter writers were paired with moms living in shelter to write a lullaby for their children. These songs will be recorded for the moms to keep, and were performed live on April 26th.
2017 Holiday appeal results
Thank you to the 357 donors who contributed $247,000 through our Holiday Appeal from November - December 2017! They say it takes a village to raise a child. We believe it also takes a village to raise a family. The success of this appeal shows that it truly does take the support of our entire community to help families get back into permanent homes and stay there.
Ninety-Nine Girlfriends impact award
We are thrilled to share that PHFS has been awarded a $100,000 Impact Award from the Ninety-nine girlfriend to expand our Diversion & Prevention program! With these dollars, we will be able to help families prevent homelessness in the first place. This is the single largest donation PHFS has ever received, and we are so humbled and grateful for this transformative opportunity.
