The Family Life Center makes it so restoration can happen at Shepherd’s Door.

There are so many great reasons to come to work at Portland Rescue Mission. You love to see hungry people fed. You love to see lives restored. You love to witness true growth and transformation. You love the Lord and want to be a part of the amazing work that He’s doing every day in the lives of men, women and children suffering from hunger, homelessness and addiction. Here’s a few more reasons you may not have thought of …

YOU LOVE KIDS: At Shepherd’s Door, in particular, one of the most vital parts of the life restoration that happens occurs because of our Family Life Center (FLC). The FLC is where the children of our women’s residents spend their days while their moms are working through the 12-month restoration program. Under the care and watchful eyes of the incredible FLC staff, the kids at Shepherd’s Door get the attention they need to thrive in the recovery process. You too can be a part of their journeys through one of the two positions currently open in the FLC.

YOU LOVE CARS: If you love working with your hands and anything with four wheels, Drive Away Hunger is your place. Drive Away Hunger is not only one of the Mission’s most important fundraising tools, it also serves as a huge blessing both for the people looking to do the most good with a car they want to get rid of and/or those looking for a new one.

YOU LOVE BBQ (and who doesn’t?): Mission Bar-B-Que is our newest social enterprise at the Mission. Mission Bar-B-Que is not only the best BBQ in the northwest, it’s also a vital part of our vocational training with residents of our New Life Ministries.
