Francis found safety and a way back home.
Portland Rescue Mission has been recognized as a four-star charity by Charity Navigator, earned the Guidestar Exchange Seal and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau. The Mission is a long-time member of the national Association of Gospel Rescue Missions.

Our latest Annual Report shows continued efficiency and significant impact in the lives of hurting people.

Since 1949, Portland Rescue Mission has been feeding and caring for hurting, hungry people. In recent decades, we’ve expanded our ministry to help men, women and children through addiction recovery, job training, education, emotional healing and spiritual renewal.

The recession continued to challenge us during the past year. While troubling, we rejoice at every new person we meet at Portland Rescue Mission.  God has graced us with all we’ve needed to extend a hand of hope to every hurting soul that walked through our doors.

We see many new faces every day… not just numbers, but hurting people. To help them on their “journey home” is the essence of our ministry at Portland Rescue Mission… whether through immediate needs, or life-long recovery.

As Portland’s largest provider of emergency services, our daily services of meals and shelter continue to rise. We deeply appreciate your support.
