The foundation for William Temple House was established in 1965 by Father Clarence T. Abbott and other lay members of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon. William Temple House is preserving the self-sufficiency of people in need, without regard to race, gender, age, marital status or religious affiliation.
William Temple House's namesake, Archbishop of Canterbury William Temple, was a prolific author of volumes on Christian social action. The impact of WWI and WWII and their effects on Temple began his avocation as an author. They also formed his view of the church as a crucial advocate for social welfare and justice.
Since 1965, William Temple House has served Portland by providing help where it is needed on behalf of the disadvantaged and distressed in the community.
In July of 2003 William Temple House opened a west side food pantry in a room at All Saints Episcopal Church in Hillsboro. The first volunteers came from the parishes of All Saints, Hillsboro and St. Bede's, Forest Grove. These dedicated people order the food each week from the Oregon Food Bank, and welcome and assist those who visit the food pantry.
In addition to what we are able to purchase from the Oregon Food Bank, William Temple House West receives a monthly average of 911 pounds of direct food donations.
Donations of non-perishable food, produce, or personal items are accepted during church business hours during the week and on Sunday mornings between 9:00 - 9:45 am. If you have a large food donation, arrangements can be made for pick up.
Monetary donations are welcome all the time. Please make checks payable to All Saints, but put William Temple House -West on the notation line, so it will be put in the proper account.
