Kelcey's Story of Hope

Kelcey wanted a friend. He’d do just about anything to fit in, to be accepted and known.“I thought alcohol would help me be this nice guy, that it was going to help me relate to people,” says Kelcey. He’d invite people over to his house or to a bar, hoping they’d chat all night and have fun. But his plans always backfired. Inevitably, Kelcey would drink too much, become angry and destructive. “It was really just tearing me apart,” he says. “It made me even more lonely. I’d be that guy that no one wanted to be around.”

Mike's Story of Hope

Before Mike came to Portland Rescue Mission, he was shocked at how difficult it was to survive while being homeless.  “I woke up one morning on the Burnside Bridge in the middle of January and couldn’t feel my toes. I’d been wearing the same clothes for three days and decided that I couldn’t do this no more.”

Finding a job seemed impossible. Dealing drugs was the only occupation Mike had ever known since he was a teen.
