John's Story of Hope


John lost everything that was important to him -- but still didn't think he had a problem. Meth completely destroyed him. He tried to end his life.

Richard's Story of Hope


Richard shivered in the cold Portland rain. Sick with the flu, he walked the littered sidewalks of Portland, feverish and completely soaked.

At Portland Rescue Mission, Richard found a refuge of hope. A hot meal and safe place to sleep were just the first steps toward his new life.

For weeks, she rarely left the darkness of a small bedroom she was renting. "It was the deepest, darkest depression I've ever experienced," Lauren remembers. "I was done living my life."

Thanks to compassionate friends like you, Lauren found Shepherd's Door, the women and children's recovery ministry of Portland Rescue Mission. She's healing from a troubled past and starting a brand new life.
