Family Services

Everybody needs a little help every once in awhile.  We know it's not easy to ask for help, but we are here to do just that - help.  If you find yourself struggling to put food on the table or pay the heating bill, please visit our Family Services. 

Below you will find everything you need to know about what we offer and how we can help you. We want to help to the best of our ability and capacity to help.   Let us help lift the weight off your shoulders and lift your spirits. 

We here at The Salvation Army Portland Tabernacle Corps are always interested in providing the best level of service as our resources allow.  While we are sorry that we can't meet every need, we can and will do our best to provide an atmosphere of service that seeks to value and love those who come to us for assistance.
