God is doing amazing things in the lives of the residents here at Portland Rescue Mission! At The Harbor, our community of men overcoming homelessness and addiction, so many are seeing God’s work first-hand. Here are some ways the men have recognized God’s love in their lives.

“I got to go to the movies with my daughter. I hadn’t seen her for 8 years. Praise God. She told me she is going to come to my graduation.” -Gordon

“My family is talking to me again and now has accepted me back into the family. They are behind me 100% and they are very happy.” -Randy

“God has shown his Glimmer towards me in a way that he has lead me to this Harbor program. I had no direction – no where to go and one that accepted me but he lead me to The Harbor where Ive been welcomed with greatness.” – Fernando

“I heard how God lead a brother to The Harbor. It came down to one phone call just in time. 30 minutes later and our brother would not be here at The Harbor.” – Brandon
