About Us

The Father’s Heart Street Ministry is a Resource Center at 603 12th Street in Oregon City. Our goal is to help men and women find a safe refuge from homelessness, hunger and addiction. We are a faith based organization founded in 1999 that provides daily services and meals to men and women.

Recent discussions of The Father’s Heart Street Ministry’s religious affiliations has come up, we want to take the opportunity to relay our core mission to our community. TFH is rooted in a religious foundation, we are not aligned with any one denomination. Our ministry was built on, and continues to offer, unwavering love and support to those who enter our doors. We welcome all individuals in need. Services are provided and never withheld based upon religious opinions or beliefs. Each of us – staff, volunteers, and clients – enter our space through various walks of life – and we respect each individual for their true authentic self. We believe that person centered care is comprised of physical, mental, and spiritual support. We understand that may look different to every person. As a direct service provider and also a ministry, we not only honor that but celebrate it. TFH is a safe and welcoming space, and we feel honored to serve our community.

Remembering 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, 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.

On January 1st, 2017 our precious founder, friend and lover of Jesus went to be with her heavenly Father. Those of us that remain are committed to continuing the great work that she began. It’s with honor and love that we dedicate this page to the memory of Teri and her great legacy.

Our Mission

We share the love of Christ as demonstrated in the Word of God to transform the lives of hurting, lonely, hopeless and addicted people to be His Hands and Feet Extended in Love.

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.
