Come on out this 9/11 weekend for an amazing Day of Service with the Portland 1st Platoon, as they report for duty at Richmond Place.
Richmond Place, Impact NW’s transitional housing facility, consists of 20 drug-and-alcohol-free units to house extremely low-income Multnomah County families—many of whom have a history of substance abuse, mental illness, and domestic violence. They provide shelter for up to 2 ½ years, working with families to create to create individual Action Plans, which typically include steps such as earning a GED, completing a job-training program, enrolling in parenting classes, attending a financial literacy workshop, and enrolling their children in neighborhood schools and after-school programs.
We will be tackling some amazing, impactful projects...and we'd love to have you join us.

Inclement Weather Plan :
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
