    Marisol Ramos, with 2-week-old Aracel, and sons Jose, 3, and Daniel, 5, waits for assistance in the lobby of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Portland Council. As government struggles to meet record demand for assistance, churches and nonprofits that also help form the social safety net are feeling stressed, too. Some have had to close programs (temporarily) or scale back what they do. Photo by Ross William Hamilton /The Oregonian
