At its core, Hawthorne Mutual Aid is people taking care of people.

It started with a small group of Southern Oregon community members responding to the needs of their houseless neighbors for food and essential supplies.


A group of folks would barbecue at Hawthorne Park and offer meals for free, no questions asked.


Over time, the project has become a fixture at Hawthorne Park and has grown to provide meals every day thanks to donations from the community members and partnerships with local businesses and organizations.

SOEquity is proud to sponsor the Hawthorne Mutual Aid project by providing volunteer coordination and collecting donations on behalf of the Hawthorne organizers. 

Taking care of people!
