Your Dollar Goes So Much Further
New Annual Report Reveals Greater Effectiveness

Hope is Here - Annual Report 2008-09Our latest Annual Report shows dramatic improvement in efficiency over the last three years.

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.

This year, your support will help provide nearly 250,000 meals and over 67,000 nights of shelter. That’s a 20% increase in meals since the 2008 recession.

Even better, more of your donation goes directly to people who are hurting. 59% in the 2007 fiscal year. 71% in 2008. And 74% in 2009.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

  • The needs of homeless men, women and children are higher than ever.
  • Your continued support helps us meet the urgent need.
  • We’re wisely using your resources with increased efficiency. Your dollar goes further!
