If you have ever thought about volunteering at the Zimmerman House or joining ECHO (East County Historical Organization) -- now's your chance to learn more! We are holding two "open house" events: on Thursday, April 12th from 4pm - 7pm and Saturday, April 14th from 9am-noon. The Zimmerman House is at 17111 NE Sandy Blvd in Gresham. Stop by and join us for a cup of coffee and cookies.

ECHO was formed in 1987 and is home to both the Zimmerman House and Heslin House museums. We are an all-volunteer organization at this time, and are looking for new members and volunteers to support the preservation work at both sites, do basic office work, help with marketing, work in the gardens, etc.

The historic Zimmerman House was built in 1874 and was home to three generations of the Zimmerman Family. Their furnishings and personal articles remain in this two-story Victorian home, with nine rooms open to the public. We are hoping to be open to the public every Saturday again this summer, and are recruiting new volunteers to be on-site.

Become A Mentor
Change a Child's Life

When: Thu, May 04, 2017 6PM-7:30PM
Where: Gresham City Hall
1333 NW Eastman Pky
Get Map!

Are you looking for a fun and meaningful way to give back to the community? Consider becoming a mentor and change a child's life for the better. Simply spending time with a young person once a week after school or on weekends helps kids build social and emotional skills, keep better relationships with family and peers and lowers the risk for drug or gang involvement. Plus, it's fun! You can help a kid by spending just a few hours a week doing activities you already enjoy.

Family of Friends is a family-style mentoring program. We primarily enroll kids in elementary school and match them with a mentor family, couple or individual for year-long mentoring relationships (with the option to continue longer).

We are currently looking for mentors who want to mentor a child in the Gresham area.

Please contact Allison Yoder at 503-351-5805 or ayoder@family-of-friends.org to sign up for an orientation and to learn more about Family of Friends mentoring.

Visit the Family of Friends website for more information.
