Harry’s Mother and Garfield House Emergency Shelter

Harry’s Mother, the only comprehensive youth crisis center in the Portland metropolitan area, provides 24-hour crisis intervention, emergency shelter and individual and family counseling to youth ages 9 to 17 and their families. 

A national “best practice” program, Harry’s Mother helps over 500 youth and their families through its Crisis Intervention and Counseling Center and confidential Garfield House Shelter while a 24-hour Youth and Family Help Line provides immediate support and information and referral to 2,500 callers each year.

24-Hour Crisis Line: (503) 233-8111

Juvenile Reception Center

A Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative undertaken by The Annie E. Casey Foundation to reduce the reliance on secure confinement, the Reception Center provides 24-hour immediate intervention services for youth ages 11 to 17 picked up by the Portland Police for truancy, curfew violations, running away, trespassing and other low level misdemeanors and status offenses.

A collaboration with the Portland Police Department, Multnomah County Department of Human Services and the Juvenile Services Division of the Department of Community Justice, the Reception Center, co-located at Harry’s Mother, provides a safe, non-secure setting for youth waiting to be reunited with their parents or guardians. While at the Reception Center youth have access to crisis counseling or other services they or their family may need to decrease further involvement in the juvenile justice system, including referral to the Harry’s Mother Garfield Shelter.

24-Hour Line: (503) 542-4640
