Shepherd’s Door – Addiction recovery for women and children

Shepherd’s Door – Addiction Recovery for Women

What is Shepherd’s Door?

Shepherd’s Door is a community of single women and women with children (ages 10 and under) who participate in New Life Ministries at Portland Rescue Mission. At Shepherd’s Door, you’ll find a sanctuary of peace and security as you move into a healthy lifestyle while dealing with the pain of addiction and previous choices. You (and your children) will learn basic life skills, as well as develop an understanding of how to make a total life change, restoring relationships, and living in freedom!

Shepherd’s Door has developed an outstanding relationship with the Department of Human Services, and we work diligently with the courts to provide you with significant opportunities to learn strong parenting skills in a loosely supervised environment.

If you are seeking freedom from addiction, a rich relationship with God and a group of women to walk this journey with, consider applying for an interview at Shepherd’s Door. Our faith is the strongest component of complete life healing. Come walk this journey with other women who have found their hope and healing through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
