Kevin decided to drink until he was dead…
“I decided to drink until I was dead.”
Like many men and women who come to Portland Rescue Mission for help, Kevin had completely given up. He would have gladly welcomed death.
“I had ruined the best things in my life,” says Kevin. “I felt like dirt, so I was going to drink myself to death. I called it ‘slow-motion suicide’ because I didn’t have the guts to pull a trigger.”
Thankfully, Kevin found help at Portland Rescue Mission. Compassionate support from friends like you helped offer him meals, shelter — and a new reason to live.
