Evan's Story of Hope

Last winter, Portland, Oregon was hit with major snowstorm right at Christmas. Evan nearly froze to death in it.

Angel's Story of Hope

Angel was born on Thanksgiving -- yet the holiday meant almost nothing to him.

Last year, he was homeless and hungry. This year, after months in our recovery ministry, Angel is surrounded by friends who care.

He's healing from the inside out. He has a new kind of family to spend Thanksgiving with.

What Can A Meal Do?

What can one meal give? We asked some of our homeless friends to tell us.

When hurting men and women hit bottom, Portland Rescue Mission becomes their place of refuge. A hot meal, warm shower, a safe bed and clean clothes let them know that someone still cares.

Your gift gives more than a meal, more than a bed. You help us give hope. Donate online at Or call 503-MISSION (647-7466)
