We are a home-away-from-home for families with a child receiving medical treatment. RMH Portland provides all the comforts of home and a support system to lean on. At our House, you'll find friendly volunteers, home-cooked meals, warm beds, laundry facilities, and more. Our services relieve emotional and financial stress, allowing families to focus on their child.
