A Glimmer of Hope

Homelessness hurts, especially when the weather turns cold and wet. Many Portlanders have nowhere to go for shelter and feel lost, hungry and helpless.

Thanks to caring people like you, there is more than a life trapped outside in the freezing rain. At The Harbor, our recovery program for men and Shepherd’s door, our community of women and children, hope is found. A feeling that not only warms the body, but also warms the soul. 

“God has worked in my life by bringing me into The Harbor.
