Store to Door supports independent living for Portland area seniors and people with disabilities by providing an affordable, personal, volunteer-based grocery shopping and delivery service.
We envision the Portland area to be a community where all seniors and people with disabilities are nourished, included, and can age with dignity in the setting of their own choice.
Nourishment. Connection. Dignity.
Store to Door was founded in 1989 when a handful of people living in low-income senior housing, unable to shop on their own, requested assistance from the community. Over the years we have grown to reach hundreds of clients with our weekly service. Today, 100% of our clients are homebound, 90% live alone, 83% are considered low-income and 75% are women.
In 2018, our grocery delivery and friendly visitation service will serve 737 clients with the support of 1,414 volunteers. By 2020, we plan to reach 1,000 unduplicated clients with our life-saving service.
