A Message Regarding Services During Covid-19 

During this time of worldwide challenge due to the Covid-19 virus, MFS has taken steps to reduce risks for our clients, employees, and volunteers.

As of this week, we have shifted from a site-based to a virtual-based organization, limiting any person-to-person physical services to those that are considered “essential”. 

At this time, and until further notice, our MFS main office at 1808 SE Belmont is closed – along with our Rockwood and Lloyd Center offices.

We are operating our Hillsboro office with limited staff to manage essential business functions. Our NE 24th office is operating at reduced capacity in order to support adults living at home who need essential services through our MFS Project Linkage program. 

Through virtual contact, MFS staff are in touch with the people we serve in an effort to be responsive to current and changing needs. In addition to prioritizing food and health care access for our Project Linkage community members, we continue to operate our Hunger Relief Food Pantries for families and individuals who rely on this resource. Our economic empowerment coaches are virtually responding to pressing financial concerns at this time as well, while those who support youth and families with multiple needs, continue to be in touch as well.  

Throughout MFS, our goal is to remain steadily present for the community we serve – especially at this time. We are grateful for our many partners who are extending their support and we wish everyone health into the future.

We are appreciative of any help you can offer. Please make an online donation today if you would like to help us build the support that is needed at this time.  Thank you.
