Proceeds from the 2018 event will go to these worthy organizations

Shelter Ministry.jpg

The Lake Oswego Transitional Shelter Ministry (LOTSM) sprang from meetings called by Our Savior's Lutheran Church beginning in 1986 when representatives of several churches in Lake Oswego began discussing homelessness and how best to help and support those in need. Two years of research suggested that the greatest need was for transitional housing options.  LOTSM operates two apartments right in our community, providing families transitioning from homelessness the safety and shelter of a temporary home where they receive support and services needed to return to self sufficiency. 

All services offered by the ministry have been offered at no cost. The shelter ministry employs no staff and is operated entirely by volunteers recruited from sponsoring churches, along with a handful of at-large specialists.

Use of Beneficiary Funds From Oliphant Tournament 
A portion of the proceeds from this year's Oliphant will go toward a new computer and printer for one of the apartment units. This allows children to do assignments for school and the parents to look and apply for jobs online. Small but significant steps towards transitioning back to a normal life.
