Welcome To Friendly House
A nonprofit community center and social service agency in Portland, Oregon.
We’re here for you.
Friendly House provides programs and services for everyone, from preschoolers to older adults. All of our services are offered for free or on a sliding fee scale, to ensure a welcoming and equitable space for all.
Friendly House facilities are primarily closed due to the COVID-19 virus until it is safe to resume in-person programming. Critical services and community activities are still happening remotely, and we are beginning to reopen classrooms for childcare during the school year, with strict safety guidelines in place.
Please check out our Facebook page to learn more about the community building that Friendly House is doing every day.
