Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon joins with faith leaders throughout the world in expressing our profound sorrow in the wake of the recent attacks on innocent people in Beirut and Paris. We pray for the victims and their families in their grief, and for an end to violence in the hearts of all the people of the earth.

We join with those of all faiths in asserting that terrorism has no race or religion. The violence in Paris and Beirut this week is a reminder of our interconnectedness in the face of the world's troubles. Let us not turn these terrible attacks into a source of division. Let us channel our collective grief into efforts to help others in need across the world.

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon is a statewide association of Christian denominations, congregations, ecumenical organizations and interfaith partners working together to improve the lives of Oregonians through community ministry programs, ecumenical and interreligious dialogue, environmental ministry and public policy advocacy.
Add your voice to ours to express Christian values of justice, compassion and stewardship of the earth.  Join us in respectful dialogue between faith traditions. Find your passion in EMO’s community ministries to give practical help to those in our community most in need.

Guidelines and Recommendations for the Overnight Sleeping Pilot (Portland metro area) 

November is National Youth Homelessness Awareness Month
Teen homelessness rates have soared in the United States, with fewer jobs available for teens to help their family financially and more stresses pushing more kids to leave their homes and live on the streets.

EMO's Second Home is a community response to the housing needs of unaccompanied, homeless youth while they attend high school. Last year, the program facilitated housing arrangements for 12 students with volunteer host families, providing 70 months of housing and over 6,000 meals. Learn more about the program and how you can help.
