The Drop-In Center has provided support and child care for the youth in the North Portland area for over twenty five years. It has been a consistent resource for not only child care, but attending to children’s needs year round.
The Drop-In Center, as well as Bethel Lutheran Church, is intentional about its effort to be open and affirming of all religions and beliefs. We welcome everyone and honor the rich diversity and giftedness that age, sexual orientation, race, belief, emotional and physical health, gender identity, and station in life bring to this program and the relationships we are building. We do not discriminate based on any dimension. While the programs offered are a ministry of the church, we do not offer religious education.

The Center’s Director is Tammy Gover. She can be reached at or at (971) 717-5734.
