Jeremy's Story of Hope

Jeremy sat on the edge of the I-84 overpass. He stared at his feet dangling over the busy traffic below him, almost hypnotized, and felt the tug. Tears ran down his face as he worked up the courage to jump. "I couldn't pull myself to do it that day. But I knew I eventually was going to. It was just a matter of time." 

Jeremy's Story of Hope (Quicktime Version)

Destroyed by addiction, Jeremy found little reason to live. Thankfully, he found The Harbor, the men's addiction recovery ministry here at Portland Rescue Mission.

In recovery, Jeremy has set aside the lies he'd come to believe since he was a child. For the first time, he has developed meaningful relationships - with staff, volunteers, and other men in recovery.
