Portland Rescue Mission

An organization focused on breaking the cycle of homelessness and addiction, Portland Rescue Mission (PRM) serves folks in downtown Portland. They offer emergency services of food and shelter, as well as programs designed to meet a hurting person at their point of need. 

There's currently a Westside Community faithfully serving dinner to hundreds of guests at the Burnside Shelter every 1st and 2nd Mondays, and 4th Wednesdays. You're welcome to join them, and there's always a need for more volunteers!

John and Yeonsoo Anderson lead the community involved in this initiative, and would be glad to connect with you! To find out more details on how you can join on these nights, or for additional ways to get involved with folks at PRM, contact John Anderson by clicking "Contact". To learn more about this organization, click "Learn More".
