At Portland Rescue Mission, David got more than food and roof over his head. He looked beyond the physical aspects of his addiction and began healing from its root causes. He found a deeper connection to God, learned new life skills and got his GED.

David found a total life recovery. Your support today gives that same hope to more men and women like him.
