Friendship House information meetings planned

Friendship House is a residential opportunity for women, 21 years of age or older, at George Fox University, in partnership with Mark 2 Ministries and Friendship House Partners.

Students live in intentional Christian community with persons with an intellectual or developmental disability. Life is ordered around the community building blocks Jean Vanier articulated (founder of L’Arche communities), “Eat Together, Pray Together, Celebrate Together!”

Friendship House celebrates together! Celebration happens because Friendship House is a place of deep belonging in which each person, regardless of ability, is seen and recognized as a gift.

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, plan to attend one of the informational meetings held in early April:

  • Monday, April 3, 2 to 2:45 p.m. at the Portland Center (PSD 160)
  • Monday, April 3, 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. on the Newberg campus (Stevens 109)
  • Tuesday, April 4, 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on the Newberg campus (Stevens 101)
