Derrick is in our Link program. He came to the Mission from the streets: hurting, homeless, hungry, in search of a place that could help him get back on his feet.
DID YOU KNOW? Portland Rescue Mission’s Link and Connect programs help homeless men and women get jobs and housing. They live at the Mission for 3-5 months, working part-time at our Burnside Shelter while searching for employment, learning skills, saving money and getting other affairs in order.
When he heard about our Link program that helps homeless men transition off the streets and into jobs and housing, he decided to give it a shot. After several months in the program, Derrick just received some amazing news.
