“It’s happening! With a community coming together, a vision is being fulfilled. Continue to pray for The Fathers Heart, LoveOne, Homeless Solutions Coalition, County and City leadership, Oregon City Police, Fire and Medical, the community, and for all of the wonderful humans we serve. We are saving lives, changing lives, bringing Hope. This is so wonderful and as we all join together we can accomplish much. Blessings to you as you read…see the vision, hear the calling…and know that Jesus is good ❤️ ” 

 

Our Father is doing A LOT here at The Father’s Heart Street Ministry. Through compassionately providing a safe and peaceful place to receive a shower, clothing exchange, meals and place to rest, our guests begin to experience the love of God.  In addition to these services, relationship and trust begins to be built.  This is crucial to next steps towards healing and a promising future.
