As a teen, Mina ran away to escape the abuse in her home. Years later, she lived out of her car, alone and afraid.

Thanks to your support, Mina found Shepherd's Door -- a refuge of safety for women and children affected by abuse, addiction and homelessness.

Richard's Story of Hope

"If it wasn't for Portland Rescue Mission, I would just be another bum on the street..."

When he was homeless, Richard often came to us for a hot meal and a safe place to sleep. But he knew he needed something more -- he needed a way out.

Your support helps give more than a meal, more than a bed. YOU GIVE HOPE.
