Operation Nightwatch is a non-sectarian night ministry of friendship and community that has been serving Portland’s street population since 1981.
Located at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, the Nightwatch Hospitality Center is a sanctuaryDowntown Hospitality Center for the lonely, mentally ill, homeless and impoverished in downtown Portland.
On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m., it is open as a place where guests may drop in and socialize, play games, and develop friendships. On occasion, we’ll encourage interaction with Open Mic nights, chess or Scrabble tournaments, group games of Wheel of Fortune or Family Feud, or singing karaoke.
Registered nurses are on duty each evening we are open to provide foot care and attend to basic health needs our guests may present.
