TRINITY OUTREACH MINISTRIES
We believe that each individual plays a role in creating a just, peaceful, and sustainable world.

VILLAGE SUPPORT NETWORK
The Village Support Network is a collaboration of New City Initiative, Portland Homeless Family Solutions(formerly Goose Hollow Shelter),the Columbia Methodist District and area churches. As homeless families are put into housing, support groups from churches are formed to help them through the first six months - support which has proven crucial to the success of families remaining in homes. Professional staff works with and trains teams of five or six people from parishes to offer support and companionship on the journey. We now have a team of eight led by Kay and Bob Sharp and Mary and Jerry Myers.
