Portland Homeless Family Solution
Family Village Campus

The Olseth Family Foundation (OFF) is honored to sponsor the spacious, light-filled Play Room in the Portland Homeless Family Solution (PHFS) Family Village Campus.  This recently opened facility is Oregon’s only homeless shelter incorporating innovative trauma-informed design and architecture, which is proven to help people heal from the crisis and trauma of homelessness and lead to better outcomes, like shorter shelter stays and greater success moving into long-term stable housing.

The priority for OFF is to keep the playroom stocked with fun and educational toys, games, crafts and activities, as 59% of the PHFS residents are kids, with an average age of 9 years old.
