HomePlate Meals with Youth (age 18+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Meet our Volunteer Leaders Amanda and Marcus!


**VOLUNTEERS WILL NEED TO BRING A FOOD ITEM. If this is a hardship for you, please let the Volunteer Leader know. The Volunteer Leader will contact you to tell you what to bring.

HomePlate is a weekly meal program serving young people who are unstably housed in Washington County. We offer them a hot meal, a shower, a movie, games, conversation, and other resources: employment, housing, education assistance.

Supplying dinner is our biggest need. The meal will serve between 40-55 people, which includes your group and other volunteers. Together, volunteers will prepare a main dish, salad, fruit/vegetable, and bring 1 gallon of milk, and 1 gallon of juice. Dessert and bread are welcome but optional.

We are looking for people who enjoy hanging out with young people, providing a listening ear, and offering positive role-modeling.

Wednesdays- Beaverton
Thursdays- Hillsboro
