Our Mission

Helping those in need in Clackamas County

We share the love of Christ, as demonstrated in the Word of God, to transform the lives of hurting, lonely, hopeless and addicted people.

We see The Father’s Heart as a safe refuge, where those struggling with homelessness can rest, shower, sleep, eat a warm meal and rest in the peaceful presence of the Lord.

Greetings and Happy New Year!

On behalf of The Father’s Heart, I would like to thank you for your support and commitment to this ministry. It is because of your faithfulness in partnering with us that together we have made a significant positive impact on those experiencing homelessness.

In 2021, as we have navigated the changes that COVID has brought to all of us, we have been able to make many positive changes, and opportunities for growth in ministry. It’s actually quite remarkable what God has done.

We are now open 5 days a week, with a case manager present each day. Case management is trained in assessing mental and behavioral health needs as well as needed resources for self-sufficiency.

We have also been hosting the Clackamas County Hotel Shelter Program. We have 5 case managers working with all hotel participants for permanent supportive housing. So far, we have been able to house 31 people. With the help of community partners, we will place the remaining 91 households as well. In addition, we are working with 30 more vulnerable individuals to provide housing. We intend to place a heavy focus on housing these folks and
many more this year!

With all these positive changes, there has also been repositioning of staff. To best serve the ministry in the direction we believe God is leading, we have asked Jennifer Morris to take on the role of Executive Director. We are excited to have Jennifer take on this new role as we go into 2022!
Under His Shadow,

Marty Gant

Our Founder

Our Founder, Teri Gant, came from a background of poverty, dysfunction, low self worth, low self esteem, depression and abuse. She accepted Jesus into her life and heart at the age of 24, but continued to battle with depression for years.

After completely surrendering her life to the Lord, in a deeper way than ever before, the Lord touched her life in a powerful way. Completely healing her in her body, spirit, mind and emotions. After spending a year seeking His face, in a place of complete surrender and intimacy, The Father’s Heart was birthed, and the Lord set her feet firmly in the direction of touching and serving other hurting and depressed people.

We Need Your Help!

There are lots of ways to get involved.
