Here are some organizations that fall under the loose heading of "housing & food security."

Janus Youth Programs

Operation Nightwatch
Operation Nightwatch has three Hospitality Centers where they provide not only a safe place where those on the streets can find food, socks, clothing, blankets, and medical care, but also caring staff and volunteers who will listen to their stories and welcome them as friends. The homeless, low-income, and mentally ill are invited to see the Hospitality Center as their "living room," where they may interact with friends, share stories, and play table games. On-site nurses address elementary medical needs. There are also sponsored special activities, such as a footcare clinic, outings to local parks and cultural sites, and monthly birthday and comedy movie nights. Visit the volunteer page to learn more and sign-up to volunteer in one of the Hospitality Centers!
Address: Downtown Hospitality Center at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church; SE Hospitality Center at the Clackamas Service Center; Mobile Hospitality Center near SE Flavel MAX Station

Potluck in the Park
Potluck has been serving a free hot meal to anyone in need since 1991. Rain or shine, 52 weeks a year, we are feeding Portland homeless, every Sunday, at O’Bryant Square in downtown Portland. Four hundred to six hundred Portlanders do not go hungry on Sunday because of Potluck in the Park. The generosity of volunteers and donations from people like you that our Potluck community continues to provide for those in need.
