Arbor Lodge has developed and maintained three different work opportunity programs with De La Salle High School, Pacific Opportunities, and Portland YouthBuilders. These partnerships give community members the opportunity to demonstrate skills as well as collaborate with staff on customer service and job training.
Founded in 1979, Sisters of the Road supports community driven solutions to find innovative solutions to the issues surrounding homelessness and poverty. Through the generous customer donations at our Arbor Lodge store, we have been able to be part of the solution, providing funds to support everything from job training and support for parents and children to Sister’s Café, an open-to-everyone café serving low-cost, hot and nutritious meals.
Inspired by a strong sense of community, Joemil feels right at home at Arbor Lodge with a diverse and welcoming base of customers, vendors and staff. When Joemil is not at Arbor Lodge, you can find him camping, hiking, rock climbing, or playing the “pantry game,” which involves making a meal out of whatever is on hand to share with his family and friends.
