FGF identifies and serves unsheltered homeless individuals through direct street and encampment outreach activities including basic need resources (food, water, clothes, propane, camp supplies, etc.), referrals to housing opportunities, and basic peer support.
FGF improves food access for families and individuals experiencing housing insecurity by sustaining and scaling functionality of mobile and warehouse cold storage capacity to support sharing and distribution of food from local providers (USDA, Fresh Alliance, Oregon Food Bank, local farms, etc).
Housing Service Center
FGF has secured funding to lease a building that will co-locate housing services in Forest Grove. This service center will allow individuals and families that are homeless or housing insecure to access services that are typically spread across Washington County. This center will be shared by partner agencies to provide a wide-array of appointment based services, community trainings, and much needed hope to a suffering portion of our community. Coming soon. Expected Spring 2022.
Western Washington County Emergency Taskforce
FGF convenes and participates in a dynamic group of local leaders that have been meeting and coordinating since 2019 (started by FGF board members) as an informal working group to advance anti-poverty efforts and address economic impacts of the COVID19 pandemic. (WWCET charter)
