EVENT DATE: May 08, 2016

Katie O'Brien


This Mother’s Day walk with, or in honor of, a special woman in your life. 

10:00 - 11:00am     Pre-event festivities at Castaway Portland - NW 18th & Upshur

11:00 - 12:30pm     Community walk through NW Portland

12:30 - 1:00pm       Post event prizes


The Reigning Roses Walk features everything needed to make this a special morning: mimosas, pastries, entertainment, prizes and a wonderful 5k walk. Together with Rose Haven guests, participants will stroll a course through the streets of NW Portland, enjoying goodies along the way. Participants are encouraged to join or create a “team” made up of friends, family and co-workers. All genders and ages welcome!


There is no minimum fee to participate, however, we ask attendees to make a personal donation and/or ask others to support their team. This website makes it easy to ask your friends to join your team, or make a gift to support your involvement. Our goal is to have each participant give or raise a minimum of $189, the cost to serve a Rose Haven woman or child for an entire year! Set a goal to see how many women and children your team would like to help this year!




Despite citywide efforts, homelessness in Portland remains a critical challenge. For those fortunate enough to get a temporary bed overnight, they must leave by 7am each morning.  Rose Haven fills a unique niche as one a very few shelters available for women and children during the daytime, when they have nowhere else to go for safety and support.


We start by providing basic services that meet their immediate need for safety, food, clothing, hygiene products, etc. Then, we offer support to help them address longer-term challenges related to employment, housing, medical and legal issues. Our goal is to empower women and their children to build sustainable lives for themselves.


In 2015 we served a record 2,917 women and children who collectively visited 17,752 times during the year for services and support. Services cost just $189 per woman or child for an entire year of support from Rose Haven. Please set a goal to see how many women your team would like to help this year!
