Support Maybelle Center

Here at Maybelle Center, we serve people who live in low-income housing throughout Old Town and Downtown Portland. While they might have a roof over their heads, many of our members are still seeking a community to call home. Our programming offers individuals the opportunity to nurture their mind, spirit and bodies in a supportive and healthy environment.

We appreciate various kinds of donations that will help us serve our members. From in-kind donations to sponsorships, we are able to find a way for your gift to be meaningful and valuable to our community. Below are a number of ways you can give. Any amount is always appreciated.

One of the most valuable ways to support our work is by donating your time and building relationships with our members. Check out our volunteer opportunities to learn more.


Ways to Give


At Maybelle Center, we believe that the health of a community can be measured by how its members care or each other. We invite your organization or business to become a part of our work, through our event sponsorships.
