We are running a GoFundMe campaign through the end of November to raise funds to keep the Inn open.
In 2018 Yamhill County counted 1,386 persons living in shelters, living outside, or precariously housed (also known as couch-surfing). Oregon’s homeless population rose by 9% over last year. Newberg one-bedrooms rent for $950 on average. Several months’ deposit and paychecks may be required, which is a large hurdle.
Safe housing is key to health and success, but the Inn may close at the end of November. Pledges and projected rent cover 61% of the 2019 budget. If 75% of the budget has been raised, the Church of the Vine will be able to keep the Inn open. All funds raised will be used to cover budget items for the Hillside Inn. Thank you for taking the time to consider this small but vital ministry!
