Jill's Story of Hope

It took a car crash to save Jill's life.

Jill's Story of Hope (Quicktime Version)

In the aftermath and confusion of the accident, Jill's heart broke at the cries of her two small boys. Miraculously, no one was seriously hurt. But her addiction could have killed someone. 

It was a wake-up call Jill desperately needed.

At Shepherd's Door, the women and children's ministry of Portland Rescue Mission, Jill found healing from the fear and shame behind her addiction. She found faith in God again. And her relationships with her family were restored.

Allen's Story of Hope

Allen's family wanted nothing to do with him.

Allen's Story of Hope (Quicktime Version)

Allen never knew his father. His mother left him when Allen turned 18. As an adult, Allen left his own wife and kids, lost in his addiction.

It's a legacy of pain that's all too common in the lives of men and women who come to Portland Rescue Mission for help.

Thanks to the support of friends like you, Allen is in touch with his mother after 23 years. She writes to him and talks to him on the phone every weekend to encourage his recovery. Allen's daughters talk to him again and send him photos of his beautiful grandchildren.

Your gift today helps us give something more. More than a bed. More than a meal. You give HOPE.
