Our Location

Our handicap-accessible shelter is located at

5335 SW 42nd (map)
Portland, Oregon 97221

Limited parking is available immediately in front of the building – and don’t hesitate to double-park (as in the photo above).  It’s the only way we can fit all the visitor and workers' cars in our lot.  You can also park up the hill a ways; just don’t park across the street directly behind our parking lot because it would be very easy for someone backing out to hit a car parked on that side of the street.

Need a little help finding us?

  • If you just like your directions to our location at 5335 SW 42nd in "plain English, please": On the stretch of SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway connecting Raleigh Hills to Hillsdale, 42nd falls between Dosch Rd and Shattuck Rd. Turn UPHILL (South) onto 42nd and drive about a block – you will see our shelter at on the righthand side of the road.
