You Raised the Roof!


The new roof is…complete!

With stormy weather already upon us, we’re so excited to announce that the project to replace the roof of the Burnside Shelter is officially finished.

Beginning with a peer-to-peer fundraising initiative and culminating in a rooftop celebratory dinner at the beautiful Ecotrust building, we at Portland Rescue Mission have been blown away by the generosity and support of individuals who recognized the importance of this project, and jumped at the opportunity to make a difference. The replacement of the 9200 square foot rooftop began in September and ended in October, just in time to protect our guests and residents from the arrival of the cold and rainy, fall weather in Portland.

Thanks to many generous donors, roof-raisers, and supporters, Portland Rescue Mission can continue to provide meals, safe shelter, showers, clothing, and many other life-giving resources to our friends in need.

To all of you who helped make this possible, thank you! We couldn’t have done it without you.
