Anyone stuck or stagnant in the state of Oregon(as well as SW Washington) will find the following website handy:
211

It is a very comprehensive database of every type of support you could imagine for folks in need. In fact, it is so jam-packed, it might take a while to narrow down your relevant needs/sources.

TIPS:
- If you're not a 'youth' include your age in the search parameters. This will omit services for young ones
- If you are looking for some hot food, check different categories(soup kitchens, hot meals, community meals, etc.), since you might miss one.
- Sometimes, calling 211 is easiest. They have volunteers M-F, 8a-6p PST. I've never waited for a person and they are extremely pleasant and helpful. They really don't want to hang up until you're set.
- You can also use this service by texting your ZIP to 898211. It's a little annoying, but works.

Cheers!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$105.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
