Our Peaceful Place - Services to meet the basic needs of the homeless in Portland Oregon: "
We regret to announce that our Director - Barbara Lescher, passed away on January 27th 2013. The cause of her passing was determined to be a heart attack.
The board expresses their deep sorrow on her demise and extend our heartfelt condolences to her family at this difficult time. Barbara was the life and soul of this ministry and a tireless worker in the Lord's vineyard.
She had a deep compassion for the downtrodden in downtown Portland and many days of the week, she would walk the streets offering assistance to the poor - whether it was food, clothing, advice on social services or just a listening ear, she was there to help.
Her many years of service to this city will be remembered by all who knew her - friends, volunteers, donors to OPP and to those lives she touched everyday on the streets.
The board will inform supporters of future plans for this organization shortly.
Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . The phone number listed on this website will not be operational until further notice.
The Board of Our Peaceful Place"
