We want to take care of our community.

By providing weekly meals and a safe place when the need is greatest.

"Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves." -Horace Mann

Community Dinners

Free dinners are provided for anyone and everyone, every Sunday from 4:30 - 6 PM. We proudly serve over 100 meals every week.

Emergency Shelter

A safe place to shelter or sleep is provided for those in need when outside conditions are dangerous or unhealthy.

If you have already signed up or volunteered in the past, you can click one of the buttons below to schedule another time to volunteer!


If you, or someone you know, are a woman, struggling with homelessness, and want help to get back on your feet, look at our transitional shelter program.

If you're curious about how we do things, you can check out the manuals that we use for our services!

About Us

We want to take care of our community.

We are a non-profit, community-based, volunteer-facilitated emergency shelter and meals program. We are working closely with the City of Veneta, the Fern Ridge Advocates for the Unhoused Board, and with Food for Lane County. We are supported in our cause by them, but are not facilitated by city or county personnel.
