Spotlight on Debbie at the Beaverton Public Library

If you’ve ever been to the Beaverton Public Library you have probably been greeted by Debbie’s warm smile. Not only is Debbie the custodian at the Beaverton Public Library but she is also one of Washington County’s greatest advocates for folks experiencing housing instability and homelessness. Debbie can often be seen chatting up the regulars, scurrying around getting snacks for folks who are hungry, and making referrals to Sunshine Food Pantry and HomePlate Youth Services. 
 
When the HomePlate Outreach Team visits the library each afternoon, Debbie always greets them with uplifting energy. She tells the Team about youth she told about HomePlate and introduces them to young people who may be looking for services. She has even been known to meet young people and walk them over to the HomePlate office herself.
From all of us at HomePlate, thank you, Debbie!
